Reverse engineering is important to many different industries including manufacturing, automotive, and aerospace. It has a wide range of applications that include product design, customization, and 3D documentation.
It 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.
Watch the session below with Cory Green, Javelin’s 3D Scanning Product Manager, where you will learn and see how we reverse engineer existing infrastructure using an Artec 3D scanner and use Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS. See a demonstration of the Artec Leo 3D scanner as Cory 3D scans a BoatLift at a local harbour to add guarding. In this application, scanning is the only option as we need to avoid complex hydraulics.
