Reverse Engineering

Reverse engineering is becoming a more popular method of creating a 3D model of a part without existing CAD files. Reverse engineering reconstructs classic designs and implements new ones. It can generate lost or absent design documentation and update or create as-built documentation.

Using non-contact 3D laser scanning, FARO®’s portable CMM and 3D documentation solutions integrate 3D modeling processes into a single step. They can provide virtual simulations of automotive interiors, support rapid prototyping in plastics manufacturing and inspect composite surfaces in aerospace assembly.

Applying 3D Metrology in QA and Reverse Engineering with Andretti Autosport

Today’s new 3D metrology technology is making an impact on the design of championship Indy racecars. In this webcast, engineer Brent Knutson of Andretti Autosport® discusses the state of 3D metrology and laser scanning technology and its applications in design, reverse engineering and quality assurance practices.

Jackson Jonson Enterprise Builds Custom Services Using the FaroArm

“Jackson Jonson Enterprise was started with the FaroArm in mind; we have custom-built the service we offer to the public around the capabilities we have gained. Because of how new we are, we haven’t so much replaced a process with the FaroArm as hit the ground running offering services not possible without the FaroArm,” says Bradley Smith, Jackson Jonson Enterprise’s General Manager.

Chassisworks Realizes a New Realm of Possibilities using a FARO ScanArm

Chassisworks digitizes a variety of items and has experienced many benefits since implementing their new FARO solution. For Chassisworks, the improved processes and capabilities are the greatest value. A better product, a better fit, and in a shorter development time are the real returns.

Trinity Forge Uses a Forward-Thinking Approach to an Ancient Process

Trinity Forge saw FARO’s pricing, the equipment’s ease-of-use, and the quality of the tool itself as their deciding factors. Within two months, they were at full steam and scanning, modeling scans, and reverse engineering dies and parts for maintenance. “The speed at which we can operate is a great value to us. Several new dies from the CNCs can be scanned in the morning and approved in the afternoon. Reverse engineering of parts, maintenance of parts, or die models are all a snap using FARO.”
