Reverse Engineering

Reversible engineering is the process of discovering the technological principles of a product, object or system through analysis of its structure, function and operation. This process is used to better understand the object due to its maintenance or design a new device of the same features, but without copying the original parts.

The process of reverse engineering involves measuring the shape of construction and reconstruction of its 3D model. Physical object is measured using 3D digitizing system ATOS. The resulting data is then processed to obtain detailed polygonized network that describes the digitized object. Further processing of these data in the software packages for the reconstruction of the CAD model (Geomagic Studio, Geomagic Design X) obtained surface (NURBS) or volumetric models (STEP, IGES).

Why 3D CAD models

  • For modification of old parts
  • For analysis and study of old parts
  • For digital archiving
  • Adoption of these parts in new applications
  • Study of parts w.r.t to master parts
  • Competitive study and benchmarking
