The reverse engineering service consists of creating a 3D file from the point cloud, thus obtaining the surface of the object, creating a digital replica for post-processing with which we can produce a 3D CAD file, either in surface or solid mode with which we can work and/or modify.
In contrast to dimensional inspection work or “as-built” modeling, where the objective is to determine the deviations or defects of a part or structure, in reverse engineering the goal is to produce a very high quality surface CAD model where meshes and point clouds are transformed into geometric entities. To generate the model we can combine the data from the scan and data from other sources, such as 2D drawings.
Due to the versatility of scanning systems, this process is indifferent to the size of the object, working from large structures to objects as small as a coin. Also, our flexibility allows us to both move and scan collections of objects in our offices reducing costs and increasing productivity.
Among other applications it allows:
