Turning reality into a virtual representation is being employed in more and more aspects of our everyday lives. From modeling ancient buildings, production plants, crime scenes and football stadiums to design concepts for cars and for replacement parts which have no design data, reverse engineering is a broad field allowing us to create virtually anything we can touch. FaroArms and Laser Trackers can be used to reverse engineer geometric objects whilst more complex shapes are better captured using a non contact device such as a ScanArm or Laser Scanner LS.
To digitize a part or object creating a fully surfaced CAD model which can be used to record and reproduce the item.
Using a FARO Laser ScanArm free form surfaces can be rapidly scanned to produce a point cloud. This can be triangulated and surfaced using our various software options. Touch probe devices such as the Laser Tracker or FaroArm can also be used to reverse engineer geometric parts.
The main advantage of using laser scanning technology is the timesaving, many thousands of points are captured every second meaning that parts can be rapidly reverse engineered and reproduced virtually. As FARO solutions are portable parts can be reverse engineered without having to be relocated.
