3D Laser Scanning for reverse engineering is a very efficient and accurate way of optaining a 3D data for the input into CAD. This is required if no manufacturing drawings are available, but are required for production of additional parts.
The Next Engine 3D Laser scanner is used to scan a hubcup. The scan will be approx 0.1mm accurate.
After fusing all the scan data, the file is imported into Solidworks Premium.
Within Solidworks mesh data is preperared and a surface model is created (not on this video).
