welcome to BMS Design Ltd
On site or in-house. 3D object scanning enhances the design process considerably by speeding up data collection and reducing data collection errors. This saves time and money and thus makes it an attractive alternative to traditional data collection techniques. 3D scanning is also used for mobile mapping, surveying, scanning of buildings and building interiors for BIM modeling and in archaeology.
Our complete 3D laserscan data processing services converts STL files (from you or scanned by us) into parametric CAD models. We have converted 1000’s of raw STL data files into solid surface parametric 3D CAD models. BIM. Specialist reverse engineering software is used to transform 3D scan data and polygon meshes into accurate 3D parametric models and has features for capturing exact geometry, giving you the power and flexibility to choose the modelling method that works best for your application be it reverse engineering, product design, rapid prototyping and analysis.
BMS offers a range of outsourced design engineering services. BMS founder Dan Boardman started his career as a design engineer at TVR so has a particular expertise in designing engineered solutions for the automotive sector. This now extends to other precision engineering sectors including oil and gas. We also offer stand-alone 2D and 3D draughting and engineering drawing services. We use a range of engineering design tools including SolidWorks, CATIA and GeoMagic.
18+ years experience of managing multiple international, cradle to grave, engineering projects and accounts to the value of £20m. Automotive, Oil & Gas, Energy, IT. We have worked with BP, Shell, Ford, General Motors, Mclaren , Microsoft
ABOUT BMS DESIGN LTD
Our expertise derives from over 18 years’ experience in a uniquely diverse range of precision engineering industries; from motorsport engineering which involved race and road car design, development and production to defence and submarine engineering, including oil and gas, managing multi-million pound engineering projects.
The experience gained from these diverse industries enables our unique and valuable outlook on all challenges. Our in-depth understanding of precision engineering and the design and manufacturing life cycle enables us to project manage and deliver the most complex of projects from concept to manufacture and ensure they are on time and on budget.
We like to get our hands dirty; see, feel and fully understand the projects in which we are involved.
Our specialist engineering services have wide application in the following sectors and beyond:

Reverse engineering of an industrial shredder – 3d scanning on site – data capture and post processing
Enquiry A local industrial shredding company needed to repair/ replace some of its’ equipment. The only way to do this was to reverse engineer what they had on site. They were concerned that the parts were not straight and should they bother scanning them? The answer is Yes. Scanning captures exactly what is there so Read more about Reverse engineering of an industrial shredder – 3d scanning on site – data capture and post processing[…]
Objects don’t get much bigger than an airbus aircraft. Our brief was to take 3D scan data captured by the client and convert it into a 3D model along with a Geomagic verification report. BMS Design Ltd are experts at processing 3D scan data extremely quickly. The priority on this occasion was a quick turnaround Read more about Airbus aircraft part 3D model and 3D verification report[…]
3D scanning and reverse engineering is an easy and accurate solution to produce precise 3D models of both large and small objects alike. In this case, our client required 3D models of a set of sample surgical instruments for product marketing. The project brief: BMS were required to 3D scan and then reverse engineer a Read more about Medical instrument reverse engineering into 3D CAD models[…]
BMS were asked to 3D scan a truck for CFD wind-tunnel analysis. The 3D visualisation below is generated from the scan SDL data. On this occasion only a very basic CAD model was required mainly to show the frontal area of the truck, which is most important when analysing CFD data TRUCK by bmsdesignltd on Read more about Truck 3D scan for CFD wind-tunnel analysis[…]
BMS are specialists at processing 3D scan data extremely quickly. We returned this 3D CAD model for our oil industry client within 24 hours.

They require the scan data Read more about 3D scan data processing into 3D CAD model for pipeline maintenance company[…]
A classic car collector required a CAD model of their classic car in order keep a record of the original form and shape of their Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa in case it ever has to be repaired. The project brief: There were only ever 34 Ferrari Testa Rossa cars built (from 1956 to 1961) and Read more about 3D scan and reverse engineering of rare Ferrari Testa Rossa classic sports car[…]
Working for a client who provides solutions for the aircraft maintenance industry including component repair & overhaul, piece part manufacture and aircraft fuel tank repair, BMS originated 3D scan data and converted this into a 3D parametric CAD model of this supplied aircraft landing gear door. Quality checks and a verification report was completed and the files were issued to the Read more about Aircraft bodywork 3D parametric CAD model[…]
This project required BMS to produce accurate reverse engineering drawings for a number of tooling pieces for a truck manufacturer. The data was captured originally as STL files following 3D scanning, and we then converted the 3D scan data into parametric XT models. Can we help?
