Reverse Engineering

We use the very latest metrology grade scanning systems to ensure our reverse engineering process starts with the very best data possible to create CAD models for use in downstream processes.

Reverse Engineering is the process used to obtain 3D digital data of a physical form and create CAD models for use in downstream processes.

This may include:

  • Benchmarking competitor products
  • Creating CAD models for use in simulation or Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
  • Creating models for legacy data of pre-CAD components
  • Recreation or modification of components
  • CAD models suitable for machining purposes

Capture Point uses the very latest metrology grade scanning systems to ensure this process starts with the very best data possible.

Backed by years of experience in automotive, industrial & product design and engineering, our engineers begin by listening carefully to your specific requirements for the CAD model. This enables them to tailor the service to provide you the models you require as efficiently and cost effectively as possible.

You may require accurate models for ‘as built’ or may need to correct a part for design intent, create data for missing or damaged geometry, or add symmetry. Whatever your requirement, we have the tools and experience to deliver a tailored service to meet your needs.

If you have a reverse engineering requirement please call us on 07540 257489 to discuss it in more detail.

How Capture Point can help you

REVERSE ENGINEERING

We use the very latest metrology grade scanning systems to ensure our reverse engineering process starts with the very best data possible to create CAD models for use in downstream processes.

PART INSPECTION / METROLOGY

We scan your parts and align and compare the data to an existing CAD master model, which allows us to quickly see deviations over the object or direct us to inspect specific points.

3D SCANNING

We produce high resolution 3D scans with industry leading accuracy from 0.03mm. We can 3D scan any object, any size, from just a few mm up to 100m plus and any surface, any colour.
