Reverse Engineering

Creating a 3D model based on the physical component

If you have no design engineering data for your component or if you want to evaluate a specific component based on the level of wear, our engineers will use reverse engineering. This starts with measuring the component either with a 3D scanner or with tactile measuring. This is followed by the generation of the STEP file using a CAD/CAM program so your component can be 3D printed.

Our services

  • Tactile or optical measurement of your component
  • Part measurement using a 3D scanner
  • Creation of a 3D model using a CAx-software
  • Production-ready design and industrial 3D printing of your component

Our approach

  • Part measurement
    Measurement of the component using a 3D scanner or tactile method
  • Processing of the measurement data
    Linking the measuring points into geometric shapes and creating a mesh model in .STL-format
  • Surface and volume recovery
    The individual component surfaces are defined and then combined and connected. The resulting surfaces are then transferred into component volumes
  • Part optimization (if required)
    Adjustment of the construction data if the original part is to be improved, e.g. structurally, or to implement an extended functionality
  • Data backup
    The determined part data are now saved in a 3D software (CAD-/CAM-programs)
  • 3D printing
    Finalization of the production-ready design and 3D printing of your component
