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:
3D printers also use STL files although they require “watertight” meshes. Our mesh preparation software not only enables us to analyse and fix problems, it can also combine, modify, add features and shell the parts ready for printing.
Having produced a high-quality STL mesh file we offer a number of options:
Both Nurb & Parametric surface and solid models are compatible with industry standard CAD systems and can be supplied in a number of Neutral or Native CAD formats.
