Reverse Engineering

Scan-Xpress provides component and assembly reverse engineering services. By using dedicated optical scanners and state-of-the-art reverse engineering software, our team can create CAD models and drawings from any physical component you provide.

Applications

Creating a digital twin based on a physical component or assembly has many uses in design, engineering and manufacturing applications. Here are some areas of application:

 

  • Recreate manufacturing data for an obsolete part
  • Reverse engineering or competitor product analysis
  • Digital archiving
  • Perform simulations and analyses

We deliver working 3D models and manufacturing drawings

DELIVERABLE FILE FORMATS

The any raw data you send us or scan-data we collect from your physical part will be rendered into a 3D model and we can export that in the file format of your choice. We can also create manufacturing & assembly drawings for you.

 

Here are some CAD native file formats we commonly use:

  • Geomagic DX
  • Solidworks
  • CATIA
  • Creo Parametric

 

Here are some 3D model transfer formats we often use:

  • STEP
  • IGES
  • Parasolid
  • AutoCAD DXF
