Reverse Engineering& Forward Engineering
Reverse engineering :
We offer reverse engineering services, which include accurate geometric analysis, materials and surface analysis, and the generation of precise 3D CAD models and 2D technical documentation.
Reverse engineering is the most efficient and effective way to generate a faithful digital equivalent of the scanned element. 3D model is created from a point cloud, which is obtained in the process of micro scanning.
Specialized software allows us to change the point cloud into a mesh. This is not an automatic process; it requires the supervision of our engineers and project managers.
The mesh prepared by us in different formats can be directly used in 3D printing and rapid prototyping.
The obtained geometry of the object is, primarily the basis for creating a parametric 3D CAD model which is necessary for further analyses.The result of comparing the existing model to the designed version leads to the creation of the map of deviations, eg in the form of a coloured texture.
Reverse engineering is widely used in industry, architecture and archaeology. Having a 3D model of a physical object, we are able to reproduce 2D documentation, control the development and modification of the object, carry out simulations, which in general help to reduce the cost of the entire production process. The creation of mesh models as a method of digitization can be a form of protection of cultural heritage and allows to create digital copies of valuable archaeological exhibits or museum collections.
Forward Engineering :
There are two fundamental computer-aided design (CAD) systems. There is software that focuses on 2D Drafting and software for 3D Modelling (and the developed 2D drawings). 2D Drafting is the method of using 2D CAD Software such as AutoCAD to produce 2D technical drawings in DWG format.
2D to 3D CAD conversion is the process of converting 2D Technical drawings into 3D CAD Models.
you might have been working with 2D CAD for a number of years but now your customers would like to see a 3D Image of their product, or you might have upgraded to a 3D CAD system but do not have the time to convert your parts library to suit your CAD package.
We are able to produce models in a range of 3D formats such as STEP, STL etc. We can convert individual drawings or convert your complete library of parts for a fixed cost.
