Reverse Engineering

Whether creating a CAD models from scratch or designing with constraints from existing parts, reverse engineering is a crucial part of design from the world’s biggest manufacturers to the smallest shops. API offers a range of non-contact scanners for both large and small size parts. These scanners provide various options that emphasize speed, accuracy or simplicity.

Reverse Engineering applications are commonly found in:

  • Rapid prototyping
  • As-built modeling and testing
  • General manufacturing and inspection
  • Plastics manufacturing
  • Composite manufacturing
  • Steel manufacturing
  • Automotive manufacturing
  • Aerospace manufacturing
  • Heavy equipment manufacturing
  • Shipbuilding
  • Windmill blade manufacturing
