3D Scanning & Reverse Engineering Services

Our reverse engineering services use our own scanned data or any 3rd party data that is suitable. Most scanners produce a point cloud and this is commonly output as an STL file which is a triangulated mesh or facetted file.

We can read a variety of different mesh formats and have specialist software to improve and tidy the data

3D laser scanning allows data to be captured digitally without damaging the physical object being scanned. 3D laser scanning is the perfect solution if you wish to:

  • Digitally capture the exact size and shape of any physical object.
  • Create a “Family of Parts” from existing samples
  • Create 3D CAD models of components or tooling where no drawings are available
  • Capture 3D forms as a basis for designing mating parts
  • Capturing data for 3D printing.
