Reverse Engineering

Reverse Engineering can create fully surfaced CAD design models or perfect replacement parts with 3D measurement solutions is a process of product redesign.  That is, 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 creates fully surfaced CAD design models or replacement parts with 3D measurement solutions

Reverse engineering is used for hardware analysis in the commercial and military fields. The main purpose is to analyze the design principle of the product directly from the finished product without easily obtaining the necessary production information.

With the 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 laser scanning breaks through the dilemma of reverse modeling. Industrial-grade 3D scanners (PRINCE, HSCAN, AXE, TrackScan series) can get 3D data through professional 3D post-production software, and accurately obtain the surface 3D drawings of various structures, such as threads, ribs and cavities.
