Reverse Engineering

Reverse engineering is the method that recreates the design of an existed component. The original component is either 3D scanned or measured with traditional metrology methods and then a CAD engineer creates-designs from scratch a new CAD model. CAD files are 3D models that are used for manufacturing.

When do we use reverse engineering?

  • Discounted components from the original manufacturer. Especially useful in the classic automotive sector.

  • Altering existing components in order to fit our needs. 

  • Integrated a component in our assembly CAD environment.
