Reverse Engineering

Turn parts into CAD with scanning and reverse engineering. We can scan your physical parts and use the resulting mesh to create a 3D model for production or design modification. We can even reverse engineer broken or damaged parts.

Dimensional Inspection

After scanning your production parts, we can compare them to your original CAD design to ensure your parts are within tolerance and help identify the cause of any production errors. We can even perform analysis on your tooling to identify wear.

3D Scanning Advantages

3D scanning is the fastest way to accurately capture the geometry of a physical object, making it ideal for quickly identifying problems with production parts. And nothing is faster or more effective than scanning for creating 3D models from a physical object.

Our full-color, high-resolution 3D scanners are capable of capturing the most detailed features of an object, providing detail and accuracy that other methods cannot. The resulting 3D model retains the exact contours and dimensions of the object, enabling you to use the file to modify the design, compare the scan to the original CAD, create form-fitting aftermarket parts, or recreate a discontinued product that might no longer be on the market. The models produced by scanning are readily 3D printed and machined. They can also be converted to parametric CAD with our reverse engineering services.
