Examining the Reverse Engineering Workflow from 3D Scan to CAD

Published on January 31, 2017

There are two types of 3D measurement equipment commonly used for reverse engineering to capture 3D measurements of a reference part due to their affordability, portability, and versatility: contact 3D scanners and non-contact 3D scanners. In this article, we will discuss the differences in the reverse engineering workflow for these types of measurement tools, their advantages, and drawbacks.

Getting Started on Reverse Engineering from Scan to CAD

Published on November 30, 2016

Building anything from scratch can be difficult, especially when you don’t know how to approach it or where to start. Reverse engineering makes the design process much easier by using existing knowledge and building off of it. It eliminates the need to design from a blank slate. In part 1 of our reverse engineering series, we cover the basics of reverse engineering from scan data to CAD.
