REVERSE ENGINEERING WITH INDUSTRIAL CT
Reverse engineering for large components
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.
