How Does Reverse Engineering Work?

Reverse engineering (RE) is a mechanical engineering term. It is a process in which you take an existing object and reconstruct it by working backwards to discover how it has been designed and put together. If you think of a conventional design and production process,...

Are 3D Printed Parts Strong?

How strong 3D printed parts are depends on several key aspects, including: The material you use for printing, and How you design and print your 3D parts. Why 3D Printing Materials Matter Your 3D print will only ever be as good as the material you use. This means...

How Does Laser Scanning Work?

What Is Laser Scanning? It is an essential part of modern 3D printing. Laser scanning involves the use of lasers to survey and produce a detailed digital model of an object. This does not involve any degree of contact or damage to the scanned object. Therefore,...

How Does 3D Reverse Engineering Work?

3D reverse engineering is a process used to measure parts via data captured by 3D scanning systems. Reverse engineering allows us to remanufacture existing parts. In addition, create CAD models of them and carry out further engineering of components and products. At...
