Efficiencies Gained with 3D Scanning for Reverse Engineering

  • Oct. 11th 2022
  • 9:00am - 10:00am CST

Traditional methods of reverse engineering require hours of manual measurements and calculations – with no guarantee on accuracy. Using 3D Scanning technology, you not only gain speed, but also verify the accuracy of your data. This type of workflow is becoming more and more necessary as we see part surfaces and geometry trend towards higher complexity, especially in the automotive industry. Being able to measure and model things like sweeping body panels, precisely machined engine components, and non-standard frame assembly and profiles has become a must have for many automotive companies.

Attend this presentation to learn how you can use 3D scanning technology’s unique ability to capture complex real world surfaces and translate them to a CAD file format (with a bit of elbow grease, of course).

By attending this session, you will:

∙ Explore different reverse engineering workflows and techniques to allow for precise design of the most challenging parts.
∙ Discover the most powerful software functions at our disposal to decide when it makes the most sense to use complex methods versus time-saving “quick and dirty” methods.
∙ Learn how you can speed up processing of parts of all levels of design complexity.
∙ Get answers to some of the ‘rumors’ you’ve heard about 3D Scanning.
