Reverse engineering is paramount to multiple industries such as manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, and in a wider sense, even areas such as healthcare. It has a broad range of applications, including product improvement and reconstruction, design augmentation and many others. The world today would not be the same without it.
With the ever-increasing use of 3D scanning for reverse engineering, Artec’s 3D scanners are a fast solution for gathering the required data for reverse engineering objects and / or their components, because of their high precision and ease of use.
An international manufacturer and distributor of construction machine spare parts wanted to replace old parts with new ones milled from 3D models made by the Artec Eva 3D scanner.

How are Artec 3D Scanners used for Reverse Engineering?
Lightweight and portable, Artec 3D scanners are commonly used by engineers for establishing requirements and specifications, as well as for creating the design and concept of a product via rapid prototyping and reverse engineering. Guaranteeing the best possible results, the state of the art 3D scanners capture multiple objects in high detail, with both simple and rich geometries, and both neutral and vivid colours.
Effortless export of 3D models from Artec’s scanning and post-processing 3D software to a variety of widely used CAD and CAM programs allows users to easily analyse the data and perform further operations for reverse engineering a product or part.
