Use of the EinScan-SP 3D Scanner (Reverse Engineering)


Walter Pallarés, Patricia


In mechanical engineering, the Reverse Engineering (RE) is a process by which an existing object is recreated in digital form. The first step in a reverse engineering workflow is to accurately capture the dimensions of the part to recreate. A 3D scanner takes measurements of the part as it forms a point cloud. The scanner’s software will then create an STL file of this point cloud which can be easily imported into a computer- aided design (CAD) program.
This project encompasses different aspects to consider when doing a 3D scan with the EinScan-SP 3D Scanner, such as what type of objects could be scanned and how far this type of scanner can go.
The project also includes all the specifications needed to have a successful scan so that the CAD file is correctly obtained for future projects or even for considering the Reverse Engineering concept.
