Case Study

Reverse Engineering Case Study:
Olympic Medalist Designs New Hybrid Kayak/Canoe For Competitions

Fabien Lefevre is a well-accomplished cross discipline slalom paddler, having won two medals in the Olympic Games. In preparation for his upcoming competitions, Fabien wanted the best equipment for his races. His vision was to engineer a new type of boat, a hybrid between a canoe and kayak, he would use in slalom canoe single (C1) and kayak single (K1) class competitions.

Learn how Fabien teamed up with GoMeasure3D using 3D scanning and reverse engineering technologies to turn his vision into reality.

HDI Advance R4x: New Flexible 3D Metrology System

When you depend on 3D measurements to make important decisions, it’s crucial to know that the scan data you are getting from an optical instrument is reliable. The HDI Advance R4x 3D scanner was developed specifically for metrology applications such as quality inspection or demanding projects that require high accuracy and detailed resolution scan data with repeatable results. The R4x has the ability to scan objects in various sizes by adjusting the camera configuration, making it a flexible metrology system. Learn more about how this scanner delivers exceptional accuracy at up to 36 micron (0.036 mm) per scan.

New SpaceClaim 2016 Adds Key Reverse Engineering Features

An Intuitive Way to Create, Edit, and Repair 3D Models

SpaceClaim 2016 software delivers 10x faster 3D modeling than any other tool on the market, whether it is to design a part, prepare a model for downstream jobs, or reverse engineering from a STL file. With workflow improvements and new tools for faster geometry creation and editing capabilities, SpaceClaim 2016 empowers you get your designs and ideas to market faster than ever before.

SpaceClaim is especially valuable for reverse engineering (RE) applications because:

  • It doesn’t require CAD specialist to use the program
  • You can train users in days instead of weeks
  • It works with both STL and solids to recreate models more efficiently
  • New Skin Surface Tool makes it easy to reverse engineer complex organic shapes
