Reverse Engineering Using CT Scanning
Leveraging the unique abilities of microCT allows for the accurate generation of data for the reverse engineering of products. While conventionally this is often performed by hand measuring or CMM measuring; the use of microCT allows all features to be captured at once and is not limited by complexity or accessibility. Scanned objects can be readily converted to STL or STEP files for import into your preferred CAD package as a basis for component drawing. Alternatively the STL step can be used directly from CT data as the input step for additive manufacturing; essentially creating the ability to photocopy a component.
