If no 3D print data of an object is avail­ab­le and it is to be obtai­ned for repro­duc­tion, rever­se engi­nee­ring is the right method. The lack of 3D print data typi­cal­ly occurs when plans have been lost, a pro­duct has been sub­se­quent­ly modi­fied or design stu­dies have been pro­du­ced manually.

In rever­se engi­nee­ring, it is essen­ti­al to cap­tu­re inter­nal struc­tures, com­plex shapes and mate­ri­al pro­per­ties. Indus­tri­al CT is the only inspec­tion method that offers the­se pos­si­bi­li­ties.  Howe­ver, under cer­tain cir­cum­s­tan­ces, arte­facts can ari­se that nega­tively influ­ence the result of the scan. The modern & lar­ge com­pu­ter tomo­graphs from Micro­vis­ta coun­ter­act this:

In the pro­cess, Micro­vis­ta gene­ra­tes an STL based on a 3D point cloud, crea­tes a mesh model from the point cloud, per­forms a rever­se engi­nee­ring or con­struc­ti­ve rever­se engi­nee­ring and final­ly deli­vers a CAD.
