As part of our Reverse Engineering Service we create new 3d CAD models from existing parts/components
How to get new 3D cad models from existing parts?
There are several situations that one would require CAD Drawings of existing parts.
Reverse Engineering Services specialise in creating new 3D CAD Models and Manufacturing Drawings from measuring existing parts and products.
There are many reasons why a company could have the requirement for a new set of manufacturing drawings of one of their existing products.
One would think that if they are manufacturing the product surely they would have a drawing to manufacture from.
This is not always the case. There are many valid reasons for the necessity of a drawing for a current part.
- Drawings are with the existing manufacturer and one would possibly like to try other manufacturers
- Drawings simply don’t exist, the tooling however does.
- One would like to own one's own product drawings and not be so dependant on the manufacturer
- Changes required to an existing product
The parts get supplied and then measured (either by CMS or Hand) to then generate a new 3D CAD model. At this stage, one can easily introduce any changes that might be required. From the 3D CAD model, one can then create new Manufacturing Drawings.
How can we assist in getting new drawings on existing products?
The existing parts usually get shipped to us. We would then extract all the data for creating new 3D CAD models. Our team is very used to measuring with Calibres, Micrometers etc.
Based on the 3D CAD models (which we would create in Solidworks) we would prduce fully dimensioned CAD drawings. Which can then be exported as PDF and/or DXF format.
How much does Reverse Engineering cost?
We firmly believe in fixed price options for our clients as hourly rates give no indication of time frame nor total cost. We therefore can usually provide fixed quotes based on images supplied to us via email.
CAD Drafting Design Tools and Software
Our Expert Engineers & Drafters are versatile enough to use any software that your process might require. We have successfully managed Drafting and Design projects involving software such as AutoCAD, ArchiCAD,Solidworks, Revit Architecture, Architectural Desktop, Microstation, and 3D Studio Max.
