Reverse Engineering Services

Make Your 3D Models Fully Functional

Reverse engineering allows for the reconstruction of digital files for a project when current 3D models are not availanble. Paired with 3D scanning services, 3D scan data is transformed into a fully functional digital model that can be cycled, flexed, and rotated.

Reverse engineering services are essential for manufacturing. 

The precision of data delivered from 3D laser scanning is especially useful for product design using CAD software in conjunction with your manufacturing goals, for a real-world product concept.

Reverse engineering provide a cost-effective solution for businesses looking to streamline their manufacturing processes,

CAD File Creation

When it comes to producing 3D models, it’s important to have all the necessary components in order to achieve optimal results.

In this case, reverse engineering plays a critical role in the process, as it enables the extraction of key elements from the scan data.

Our team of experts specializes in design engineering and can provide valuable insights and guidance on the most efficient production methods for your 3D models.

What Is Reverse Engineering?

In the context of 3D scanning, the process involves creating a digital 3D model of a physical object using data captured by a 3D scanner. Initial scan data is created in a mesh file.

This process allows for design modifications, manufacturing replication, quality control, documentation of historical items, and prototyping. It is valuable in various industries, facilitating the integration of physical objects into digital design and production workflows.

Reverse Engineering Services F.A.Q

How Much Does Reverse Engineering Cost?

Our reverse engineering services are $115 per hour. This will create 3D CAD files in STEP, XT, or IGES file formats. 

How Does Reverse Engineering Work?

Reverse engineering services is performed by drawing a 3D model with 3D scan data as a reference. 3D scan data is ultra-precise and represents detail and dimension to the thousandth of a millimeter. 

What File Formats Do I Receive?

Reverse engineering services creates a CAD file. The most common file formats we can deliver include STEP, IGES, and XT. We can export in many other formats. 

Can I Reverse Engineer My Own Scan Data?

Yes. Basic post processing during 3D scanning services provides a mesh file in STL file format. You or your engineering must be experienced in redrawing scan data from a mesh file. Common softwares that can complete the reverse engineering process are Geomagic Design X or Fusion 360.

Where is Your Reverse Engineering Services Located?

Our office location is in Irvine, California. We work with clients both domestic and international as most work work can be performed remotely. 

What Other Services Do You Offer?

Mobile 3D scanning services, data analysis, product development consulting, CAD design services, and reverse engineering.
