We offer Reverse Engineering enabling our client to obtain CAD Drawing from existing parts
What is Reverse Engineering?
Reverse Engineering is a term used to describe the process of re-constructing an existing product accurately, for the purpose of manufacturing more of the same kind or modifying it to improve upon its design.
Often companies have the requirements for CAD Drawings of an existing part.
This can be due to:
- No Drawings exist only the tooling to make the part
- Drawings are very old
- The Supplier makes the part and has and will not provide the drawings
In these cases it is possible to measure the existing part by:
Following this, new 3D CAD models can be created and from this the subsequent 2D Drawings.
What Reverse Engineering Services does Jensen Consulting offer?
At Jensen Consulting we are regularly receiving parts that do not have drawings. Depending on the accuraty required we either measure or scan the parts to create new drawings. After the new CAD model has been created, modifications can also be implemented. Our drawings will be in accordance with BS8888 to enable our client to send the drawings to be understood fully by any Manufacturers.
Computer Aided Design (CAD) based 3D scanning has enjoyed an increase in use over recent years. Lower hardware costs and improved software have combined to make it possible to reverse engineer items from the smallest wire to entire vehicles.
