Overview & Application

Overview & Application


Reverse Engineering or 3D digitization is the recovery of a physical object’s geometrical structures with the use of 3D laser scanning technology.

Data is collected by the laser scanning head or the 3D Digitizer, to produce a point cloud, which is used for the creation of 3D CAD surface data.


This technology is used to replicate, enhance or alter an existing object or part, without designing it from scratch with a 3D CAD system, and can reduce product development cycles.

Another use of Reverse Engineering technology is for ergonomic design. In this case, the part is reverse engineered in order for the design to be built around it.

Reverse engineering is also used by businesses to bring existing physical geometry into digital product development environments, to make a digital 3D record of their own products or to assess competitors’ products. It is used to analyse, for instance, how a product works, what it does, and what components it consists of, estimate costs etc.

Application and Benefits

Overview & Application

  • Reduce Product Development Cycles
  • Capture Complex Geometries
  • No dedicated environment necessary, like closed room with air condition
  • Create CAD data for further processing, fully integrated.
  • “Mount-it-where-you-make-it” convenience
  • Subsequently, design and engineering enhancements can be applied to existing designs
