Reverse Engineering Services
We perform reverse engineering of parts, prototypes, sculptures, tooling and other items. We use high-precision 3D laser scanning to create accurate 3D models. This process is useful for replicating parts, capturing existing parts for future records, comparing idealized parts to as-built parts to analyze for defects such as wear or deformation, and more.
The 3D scanner produces a point cloud which is of little use on its own. Point clouds must be converted to the desired deliverable, whether it be a NURBS autosurface or a parametric (feature-based) 3D model. Parametric 3D models can be created in a variety of standard formats including SolidWorks, STP, IGES, DWG and more. Applications include small items such as a mechanical part, prototype, sculpture, or tooling, or large parts such as machines or large equipment.
4-step process to get from scan to finished CAD model
