Reverse engineering, 3D scanning and engineering project management.

welcome to BMS Design Ltd

BMS provide complete 3D scanning services to the engineering and manufacturing sector and we have been doing this for over 10 years. Our services include mobile or in-house 3D scanning and the conversion of 3D scan data into parametric 3D CAD models and drawings. We have particular expertise in 3D scanning for reverse engineering applications whereby your object or component is scanned and then the data converted to a 3D CAD model so you can verify, modify, manufacture and more. We also provide Design Engineering and Project Management consultancy and sub-contracted manufacturing services.


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, 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 sold surface parametric 3D CAD models. 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.


BMS supply well rounded agile, driven and astute subcontract project managers and project engineers, with 15+ years experience of managing multiple international, cradle to grave, engineering projects and accounts to the value of £20m.


We provide a range of specialist engineering services which include reverse engineering, 3D scanning, design engineering and engineering project management.
We are passionate about quality engineering and exceeding expecations

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:

  • OIL & GAS
