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.
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:
OIL & GAS

BMS were asked to scan a truck for CFD wind-tunnel analysis. 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. The 3D visualisation below is generated from the scan SDL data. TRUCK by bmsdesignltd on Sketchfab
BMS are specialists at processing 3D scan data extremely quickly and returned this 3D CAD model for our oil industry client within 24 hours. The project brief: A leading pipeline maintenance company has bought a number of portable 3D scanning machines and is now struggling to process the scan data. They require the scan data[…]
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[…]
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[…]
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? BMS have specialised in 3D scanning and 3D CAD modelling services[…]
BMS undertakes a vast range of projects involving the application of 3D scanning and Reverse Engineering. The sheer range of application of these services is almost unlimited, but below are some of the typical reasons our customers get in touch: 3D scanning of an existing product or object, often a prototype or one-off item, can[…]
