Reverse Engineering

Our Reverse Engineering Services

Whether for global manufacturers or small custom shops, API’s expert staff of measurement specialists and advanced metrology equipment can perform convenient and fast reverse engineering projects. Our Laser scanning services can create data from an existing part, or compare captured data to your existing CAD model. Our reverse engineering services can also scan as-built parts to a 3D CAD Model. Laser scanning and reverse engineering services can be done at an API office or on-site at your facility.

Our reverse engineering service utilizes the most advanced equipment, software, and personnel in the industry. If your part is small enough, you can ship it to our facility. If your part is too large to ship, we will come to your facility. We have perfected the reverse engineering process to support many workflows and desired deliverables.
