What is Reverse Engineering?

Reverse engineering (RE) is the process of discovering the technological principles of a device, object or system through analysis of its structure, function and operation.

As computer-aided design (CAD) has become more popular, reverse engineering has become a viable method to create a 3D virtual model of an existing physical part for use in 3D CAD, CAM, CAE or other software. The reverse-engineering process involves measuring an object and then reconstructing it as a 3D model. The physical object can be measured using 3D scanning technologies like CMMs, laser scanners, structured light digitizers or computed tomography.

BMS Design Ltd specialise in converting STL Data into Parametric CAD models.

We have over 10 years experience working in the 3D scanning and reverse engineering fields and have converted 1000’s of raw STL data files into sold surface parametric 3D CAD models.
