How does 3D reverse engineering work?

3D reverse engineering is a process used to measure parts via data captured by scanning systems. Reverse engineering allows us to remanufacture existing parts and create CAD models of them and carry out further engineering of components and products. At Central Scanning, we have been providing 3D reverse engineering services for many years and are able to count a wide range of discerning brands amongst our client base.

Market-leading software

Reverse engineering benefits companies from a wide range of sectors. It is often used for heritage and preservation, product design, OEM manufacturing, medical and dental purposes, in the aerospace sector and many more. We are able to input and output data in the vast majority of industry used formats. These include .stl, .iges, .step, .asc, .xyz, .txt, .ply, .obj, .3ds, .wrl and .x_t. We use leading software from manufacturers such as Geomagic, Solidworks and Polyworks. Plus we can transfer parametric models to Solidworks, CATIA, AutoCAD, Pro/E and Siemens NX.

Source key information

Reverse engineering allows us to source design information from all kinds of man-made objects. We aim to improve processes and create superior copies of existing components and help you obtain high-quality replacement parts. We can make a thorough assessment of your component, closely assess how it works and help you find ways to improve it further.

Get in touch today

We are well-known for our highly professional and efficient service and can work with items ranging from tiny objects to full-size vehicles. We are constantly making further investments in our service and recently acquired the sought-after sub-millimetre Surphaser large volume engineering scanner. This enables us to carry out even more bespoke 3D scanning projects for our clients. Talk to us today to find out more about the 3D reverse engineering services that we offer.
