Reverse engineering is the measurement of a physical object that is then converted into a 3D CAD model for use in software. It is used for a wide range of applications across many different industries. Learn how to reverse engineer with 3D scanners and SOLIDWORKS.

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.
