REVERSE ENGINEERING & MODELING
Reverse engineering, in a literal sense, is the process of disassembling something to see how it operates. However, in today's modern industry, reverse engineering is rather the process of examining a physical object and then reconstructing it as a 3D model that can then be 3D printed or manufactured another way.
There are several ways to collect the data necessary for reverse engineering, but the most common method today is 3D scanning. Data obtained from 3D scanners are processed into digital models, which can then be further corrected and refined using 3D software. To find out which reverse engineering software or add-in will allow you to efficiently import and work with your scan data, contact one of our experts or explore the software options we have to offer below.
Geomagic Design X blends history-based CAD with 3D scan data processing to create the industry's most comprehensive scan-to-CAD reverse-engineering software.
Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS is the most comprehensive, integrated scan-to-SOLIDWORKS reverse engineering software solution in the business.
Geomagic Wrap is the most powerful toolset in the business for converting 3D scan data and imported files into 3D models that can be used right away.
DezignWorks is a reverse engineering software program that collects data from a digitizing device and feeds it into a modeler.
Design, reverse engineering, simulation, manufacturing, 3D printing, and sheet metal require 3D modeling software to produce, edit, and alter CAD or STL files.
