Reverse Engineering

BMS Design Ltd specialise in converting physical parts into usable digital CAD data, known as Reverse Engineering.

The Reverse Engineering process consists of;
1. 3D scan of physical parts : This produces a series of dots in space know as cloud point data or .stl file.
2. Conversion of 3D scan data into parametric 3D CAD model : AKA Data Processing.

Over the past 10 years BMS Design Ltd have converted 1000’s of raw STL data (3D scan) files into sold surface parametric 3D CAD models. Originating from our race car design expertise, our reverse engineering services fulfill requirements as diverse as oil rig emergency repairs to product design and prototyping and from data storage to analysis.

BMS Design Ltd Reverse Engineering Services : How it works

Scan data is converted into parametric theoretically perfect CAD models (Design Intent) meaning it has perfect radius fillets and flat surfaces. CAD data can be output in various formats including native SolidWorks .prt .sldrp .stp .xt (Parasolid) .igs (IGES).stl.cgr (CATIA).dwg (DWG) .dxf (DXF) .amf (Additive Manufacturing File).

All BMS Design Ltd reverse engineering projects are validated with a Geometric Quality Verification Reports to compare how close the new CAD model is in relation to the scan data.

Once the CAD has been created the models can then be used for design engineering, creating assemblies, converted into 2D working drawings, directly manufactured and or 3D Printed.
