Reverse engineering, also known as backwards engineering, is a process to measure a product and reconstruct it as a 3D model for product design when there is no original drawing at hand. Engineers analyze and research a target product to deduce its structures and functions. It is widely adopted in the machinery, aerospace, and automotive industries for product design and optimization.
Reverse engineering is a difficult and time-consuming process with traditional measuring method, as the techniques and designs of products are getting more and more complex. With easy-to-use 3D scanners, Scantech helps to break through the dilemma by capturing geometries of products precisely and effectively.
Our industrial-grade 3D scanners such as KSCAN and SIMSCAN series can obtain 3D data through professional 3D measurement solutions, and help to create 3D drawings of various products with intricate details and complex geometric features.
3D scan data captured by scanners serves as a visual guide for creating a CAD model. Engineers can extract dimensions ready for creating CAD models, which greatly shortens design cycles and accelerates iterations. 3D scanning technology in turn reduces ever-increasing costs of development for enterprises.
