Reverse Engineering

Precision 3DM is well versed with ‘Reverse engineering’, involving the process of fast and accurate digitization of existing parts or objects into a fully surfaced 3D CAD model. The process enables duplication of the parts by way of capturing the physical dimensions, features, and material properties of a component. We service a diverse range of industry sectors.Our solutions allow scanning of everything from small vehicle components to life sized large items. Our latest hand held scanning systems can achieve accuracies of 50 microns in the field or lower in the studio.

A 3D model once created can be used in a wide range of applications. The projects can be as diverse as scanning aircrafts; super yacht interior fits outs, simulating ballistic impacts or 3D printing of model parts. With minimum disruption on site, our non-contact systems allow for very fast data capture.

Reverse Engineering assists in capturing the measurements and enters them into our 3D Product Development software. This process helps to bring change to desired shapes and designs of physical objects by using 3D laser scanning technologies and 3D CAD software.
Reverse engineering has transformed many items in industry environments where the parts of systems with components have been discontinued or modified over the years, with no existing or accurate plans. The scanning allows for these items to be converted into a digital CAD format suitable for, modern manufacturing processes, model simulations, inspections and 3d printing.
