Reverse engineering is a process of product redesign with 3D measurement solutions. It involves with reverse analysis and research of a target product, so as to deduce and obtain design elements such as process flow, organizational structure, functional characteristics and technical specifications of the product to produce similar products.
Reverse engineering is used for hardware analysis in the commercial and military fields. The main purpose is to analyze the design principles directly from the finished product when we can’t easily obtain the necessary production information.
With the increasing development of manufacturing and product design levels, complexity and precision make reverse mapping more difficult, especially for complicated parts with curved surface. Therefore manually map and reverse is necessary, or producing a complete product is almost impossible.
ScanTech 3D scanners breaks through the dilemma of reverse modeling. Our industrial-grade 3D scanners, like PRINCE, HSCAN and TrackScan series can get 3D data through professional 3D software ScanViewer, and accurately obtain the 3D drawings of curved surface, ribs, cavities, etc.
Automotive chassis parts 3D inspection
It’s difficult to test automotive chassis parts, because Camera 3d scanner is easy to destruct surface and normal handheld 3d scanner can’t reach the high detail requirement.
PRINCE 3d scanner truly perform the nondestructive testing for automotive chassis parts.
Fast Reverse engineering shorten product R&D cycle
It takes more than 2 years for car seat design; reverse engineering is a normal way for secondary developing. But contact-measurement can’t get complete 3D data of car seat because of its complex structure and soft surface.
PRINCE775 3D laser scanner can quickly and accurately acquire the 3D data of car seat to further develop, greatly shorten the product design cycle.
3D scanning urges the modification and development of the helicopter.
It’s hard for traditional 3D system to measure a helicopter because of big volume and high precision requirement, which block the development of aircraft.
HSCAN 3D scanner works with MSCAN to greatly improve volumetric accuracy and urge modification and development.
