3D Scanning to CAD conversion

Reverse Engineering (RE) is the process of measuring a physical part using 3D data acquired by our 3D non-contact 3D scanners. At Thinkscan we are able to CAD redesign a wide range of parts for for further engineering. Files converted from scanned data can be exported in several file format such as Iges, Step, Vda, Parasolid, Acis & Rhinoceros​In other words, 3D scanning is the fastest way to collect data from a physical part and create a watertight CAD model whitch can be transfered to downstream applications, (CAD, CAM, FEA (Finite Element Analysis).

Here some example of redesigned shapes from scanned data
