The design of custom parts in automotive, involves the extraction of dimensions from manufacturers’ parts which is a crucial procedure. The general dimensions and the fixation points of the part need to be defined accurately. For visual improvements, the design of the new component must match the original. The critical steps in reverse engineering are acquiring, accurately and efficiently, the dimensions of parts of various shapes and complexity, potentially performed in any kind of environment and extracting the necessary information from the resulting scan to create the new design with the correct assembly features.
Due to its impressive portability, the HandySCAN 3D can perform the acquisition directly in the design studio, but also on the customer’s site, on a production floor or even in a small car body shop. It will provide complete and accurate mesh models and save a considerable amount of time compared to traditional measurement methods.
