Reverse design, as the name suggests, is different from the design process. The process is to build a 3D CAD model based on scan data acquired from the surface of an existing part or product prototype. With the widespread application of ma chine vision technology in the manufacturing field, especially rapid development of digital measurement, it has become an important application direction of reverse engineering by adopting 3D scanning technology to obtain spatial data for product.
3D SCANNING FOR REVERSE ENGINEERING
To be able to digitally reproduce components, or to confidently determine design intent, the instruments you use have to be unquestionably accurate. This makes professional 3D scanners a crucial element in the reverse engineering toolbox, whether for product improvement, reconstruction, design augmentation, or a range of other use cases.
Artec 3D scanners and software are designed with a focus on accuracy, ease of use, and speed in mind. The software is intuitive, the scanners require minimal training, and you can choose whether to seamlessly integrate these 3D scanning solutions into your existing workflow or use them independently.
FASTER THAN A CMM
An Artec scanner takes one second to capture up to 35 million points. A CMM needs hours to capture a few hundred.
Artec scanners are designed to be intuitive, versatile, and easy to use. You’ll be confidently scanning in under 2 hours!
SAVINGS IN TIME & COST
Just by using Artec scanners, an international manufacturer and distributor of construction machine spare parts saves 85 percent in time and cost.
Precise, metrology-grade 3D scans at up to 2 microns’ accuracy.
