Production processes often involve obtaining blueprints and CAD models based on a single part or fitting. On occasion, in moulding, for example, there may be a need for an associated part to be produced.
Artec 3D Scanner makes the process of Reverse Engineering significantly easier. First, the scanner generates a 3D model of the part, then, it uses specialized applications (such as Geomagic, Rapidform etc) to generate a CAD model based on an existing polygonal grid. Software that comes supplied with the scanner allows users to save 3D models in a number of widely used formats, which makes it considerably easier to transfer data between applications.
