Extract design intent from existing parts with data gathering methods that are highly accurate and repeatable.
Get a simple-solid model or take it further to get a full-parametric CAD model.
No CAD data? No Problem. Rebuild a parametric model from scratch or get all design tree information for editing.
Increase manufacturability, create usable models, or re-create one-of-a-kind parts with a complete dataset. You’ll get everything you need all in ONE scan!
Reverse engineering services, part digitization, and 3D modeling are three fundamentally linked processes. To be able to provide services in one, you must excel at all three.
Computed tomography (CT) scanning or industrial 3D imaging is the most advanced 3D scan to CAD technology in the metrology world. CT is excellent for critical components that have internal geometries that cannot be fully inspected with any other 3D scan method.
This light-based, non-contact testing system is great for reverse engineering applications, prototyping, and quality assurance. The blue light has a narrow wavelength and is not as prone to ambient light as its predecessor (white light), giving you a more accurate scan.
When looking for 3D scan to CAD services, it is important to consider the 3D scanning equipment being used, the technicians’ level of expertise, and the software that will bring the best level of interrogation possible. At Nel PreTech, you will find all three and the consultation to help you decide what 3D scanning platform is best for your project.
3D scan to CAD can be ideal in any industry looking to better a product, duplicate it, or learn from the design. The personnel conducting the scanning and modeling are highly trained and experienced in both disciplines.
Industries that use 3D scan to CAD services include, but are not limited to:
