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.

3D Scanning the Past at the Smithsonian

3D scanning is a rapidly advancing technology that maps real-world objects onto 3D computer models. The applications of 3D scanning are numerous, and 3D scanning is seeing increasing adoption for applications such as quality control and assurance. But today, we’re going to step outside the realm of manufacturing to discuss how 3D scanning is used in the world of GLAM: Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums.

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.
