Reverse Engineering & 3D Scanning


Contrary to popular belief, reverse engineering is not engineering in reverse but rather the art/science of recreating the form and function of a part or assembly to out-perform what already is. The process and outcome are similar to engineering design with the addition of conforming design constraints.

The added benefit to reverse engineering is by recreating from an existing part, this reduces revisions in the design cycle with the guarantee of process and product improvement. Additionally, reverse engineering can be used to create manufacturing independence from parts, assemblies or tooling that can no longer be sourced. Whether it be creating molds, dies, forms, patterns, plugs or just mission-critical components.

Techniques utilized for reverse engineering such as 3D Scanning, CT Scanning, CMM Probing and other various forms of digitization, can be used for creating new parts as well. This process is most notably used in the the production of forms for the carbon fiber, fiber glass and thermoform industries. Utilizing the above stated techniques will assure dimensional accuracy the first time, reducing the overall cost and time to production.


Have something old that you want to be new? Or have something unique and want more of them? We can do that. Reverse Engineering is one of our specialties. We can take anything, scan it to create a 3D model on the computer, then we can produce an exact model down to thousandths of a millimeter.
