This process is made easy with the step by step guide which help you though the process, even with more complex set of scanned data such as OLAF here:  


Scan to 3d will take a range of file in this case an STL & XYZ files. Once brought in the Software can then break this model up into sub meshes which can in turn be worked on and converted to surfaces. (The different colours represent the different sub meshes and also seen in the feature tree)        



Once we have this sub meshes and placed those into separate parts we can then spot any issues with some help from the scan to 3d software.

Once we have found these issues we can then change the way the surface wizard creates the feature lines to remove any twisted or broken surfaces. We can doing that by adding more feature lines, deleting existing feature lines, moving the existing feature lines, or relaxing/ simplifying features lines. Or in this case using a combination of these tools to produce the finished result.
