Reverse engineering

From a point cloud obtained by 3D digitization, a CAD model can be rebuilt.

According to the request, it is possible to model a skin's surface area or a volume (solid).

The file provided in IGES or STEP format is compatible with the most common CAD systems.


Depending on the future use of the CAD file (manufacturing, design, digital simulation, etc.), different modeling criteria can be modulated :         

  • An approach favoring surface appearance and quality,
  • An approach emphasizing sizes being faithful to the physical part,
  • Fitting dimensions to the manufacturing process.

 Software programs :

  • Autodesk Alias Surface
  • Geomagic Studio
  • Solid Edge
  • Catia
  • SolidWorks
