Reverse engineering is an integral process of considering technological specifications of an existing structure or product, or replicating an existing component. It is one of the best techniques for optimizing designs and offering cutting edge solutions in 3D scanning, digitizing, measurement, and manufacturing support.
Reverse Engineering Technique
To optimize designs and specifications of an existing product or structure, reverse engineering aids in:
- Product re-engineering
- Rapid prototyping
- CMM inspection and analysis
- Manufacturing drawings
- 3D visualization and animation
- 3D CAD modeling
- Mold surface analysis
- 3D laser scanning and conversion to CAD
- Manufacturability analysis
- Technical publication
The process of reverse engineering is used across different industries and applications, encompassing aerospace, heavy engineering, automobile and automotive, industrial equipment, military/defense, medical, and consumer products.
Process of Reverse Engineering
The process of reverse engineering encompasses the following stages:
- Identifying the component, product or structure that has to be replicated or reverse engineered. This can be any existing product or structure, which aids in seamless replication or contemplating the technological specifications
- 3D scanning of the component is performed, which facilitates developing a replicated model of the existing product for specification analysis and re-bridging. 3D laser scanning procedure is also practiced here to get reliable results
- The scanned component is then re-bridged to make conversion into CAD even more accurate and easier
- 3D scanned and re-bridged component is then converted into CAD model – Computer Aided Design – which is then processed towards the manufacturing cycle to create a replica of the existing product or component
