Reverse engineering is the process of discovering the technological principles of a device, object or system through analysis of its structure, function and operation. It also commonly refers to the process of taking a physical property such as a styling model into 3D CAD for the purposes of further developing a design based on that shape. The prevalence of Numerically Controlled (NC) machining technology means that this is often the most efficient way to work with industrial designs which involve these styled objects.
The methods involved include anything from simple to very complex measurements including the use of scanned data from various sources which are then fed bad into CAD models. The techniques of surface development for styled products are among the most demanding and sophisticated of modelling disciplines requiring specialised skills and experience which we bring to the task.
