Reverse Engineering

Providing a way to generate missing CAD files and update or create as-built documentation, reverse engineering allows users to quickly digitize a part or object and create a fully surfaced CAD model which can then be used to reproduce an item.

Using non-contact 3D laser scanning, FARO®’s portable CMM and 3D documentation solutions integrate 3D modelling processes into a single step. FARO’s non-contact measurement solutions are ideal for a multitude of reverse engineering applications including the development of virtual simulations of automotive interiors, rapid prototyping in plastics manufacturing and composite surface inspections in aerospace assembly.
