Reverse Engineering is a process that coverts 3D scan data into 3D parametric CAD models.
Traditional devices like callipers and coordinate measuring machines are ineffective when it comes to capturing complex freeform surfaces, and creating 3D models based on such techniques is an expensive and time-consuming task. But with 3D scanning, these objects can be accurately measured and analysed in minutes, rather than weeks.
Geomagic Design X is used to convert the output scan data into an editable solid model that’s compatible with your current CAD program. These models can be provided in neutral CAD formats such as IGES, STEP or Parasolid. Or we can provide native SolidWorks files with a complete feature tree, allowing for easy part modification if required. These models match the original design intent and are constructed as if they were engineered from scratch, making them ideal for altering or re-designing parts.
