Fast and Precise Reverse Engineering with 3D Scanning and SOLIDWORKS

Reverse engineering is the reproduction of a previously made product by examination of the product’s construction and composition. Analyzing a component, sub-assembly, or product is important to understanding the structure and its interrelationships.

Reverse engineering is a commonly used technique for situations when there is no access to drawings, CAD data, information on dimensions, or if machined parts have been discontinued. The following video is a preview of the fast and easy process of 3D scanning a part and turning it into a fully featured parametric model in SOLIDWORKS.
