Reverse Engineering

Reverse Engineering is the process of discovering the technological principles of a device, object or system through analysis of its structure, function and operation. The purpose is to reduce design decisions from end products with little or no additional knowledge about the procedures involved in the original production.

We have abilities to scan and measure a product with the help of 3D Laser scanner, structured light digitizers and then reconstruct it as a 3D model. The measured data alone is represented as a point cloud. This processes the model into more usable format such as triangular faced mesh, a set of NURBS surfaces or a CAD model. Then for the manufacturing and further references, those models can be drafted and detailed in 2D CAD. We can also reverse engineer the product while performing Value Engineering.
