3D scanning and 3D printing for reverse engineering

Reverse engineering is a versatile method of producing digital designs from physical parts. Common with technologies like 3D scanning and 3D printing, it can be a valuable tool in your prototyping toolkit.

3D scanners quickly measure complex objects and can speed up your design workflow when you use real objects as reference. By capturing and matching physical shapes, you can design 3D-printed parts that fit perfectly on existing products of all types. 3D-printed fixtures allow you to locate a drill or saw multiple times, for example, or to assemble parts with glue with the highest precision. Make reusable masks with excellent fit for sandblasting, painting or etching.

In this entry, we take you step-by-step through the reserve engineering of a retrofitted digital gauge and give you tips on the right reserve engineering tools from CAD software to 3D scanners and 3D printers in more detail.
