Reverse Engineering (3D Scanning)
3D Scanning is where we create a 3D file based on an existing object by using a 3D scanner to capture the product’s outer appearance all around into a 3D file format.
What Is 3D Scanning?
3D Scanning is the process of analysing a real-world object or environment to collect data on its shape and possibly its appearance (e.g. colour). The collected data can then be used to construct digital 3D models.
Once collected, this data allows you to examine an object digitally, which enhances and maximises the precision and speed of the scanning results. By obtaining the shape of the part digitally, the scan data can be used to either replicate the part as part of a Reverse Engineering process with Additive Manufacturing methods, or for dimensional analysis inspection process for further redesign or optimisation using a CAD/CAM software.
