Reverse engineering is a process to bring existing physical geometry into digital product development environments.
3D virtual models of an existing physical part can be used in CAD, CAM, CAE or any other software.
The physical model is measured using 3D scanning techniques. Measured data, as point cloud is processed and modelled into more usable formats such as mesh, a set of NURBS or CAD model.
If you are CAD user we can supply for you data specially dedicated for reverse engineering -as standard we can supply 3D scanned model as -iges or sat data plus stl or ply.
We can also create entities to furthermore make your CAD design process easy.
Moreover we also offer to our customers additional services like comparing CAD model with 3D scanned model. To prove that the production process was within tolerance or to see changes of model after stress coming from usage.
Also we can 3D print or create on our CNC machine 3D scanned model to confirm that all dimensions in the 3D model are preserved and adequate.
Whole 3D scanning process is performed to preserve important data. Specially during phases of post processing specially sensitive to creating mistakes as simplifying mesh or filling holes. Our software such as VXModel is designed for this application.
