REVERSE ENGINEERING SERVICE

ROTATEK can scan, measure, and recreate parts of all types.  Legacy or out of production parts can be made new from existing pieces and improved as needed.  We can extract the geometry using our Faro laser scanner or Arm to model into Solidworks or Polyworks Modeler CAD.  From there we can create manufacturing drawings and recreate the part via cnc machining, fabrication, casting, laser cutting, and a variety of other methods with turnaround times to suit your needs. 

Let us guide you through the manufacturing process with recommendations and time saving advice.  From hand sketch or part to prototype through mass production ROTATEK is your go to source.

Reverse Engineering Process

The reverse engineering process begins with us selecting the right metrology tools and software for your application.  For large parts having simple geometry the laser tracker is well suited, smaller parts with complex organic geometry may lend themselves to the laser scanner.  The digitizing process time can vary depending on size and complexity; however, Faro tools along with our staff are unique in their ability to perform these tasks efficiently. 3D scanning technology gives us abilities that were not possible in years past.  Organic shapes that were once impossible to measure are no longer a problem.  Once the geometric data is extracted the part can be modeled into CAD, this is the time to make any design changes.  A part can be simply reproduced, or it can be modified with improvements based on client needs.  Prototypes can be generated to test fit and function.  Rotatek offers various options for prototyping including CNC Machining, Laser cutting, 3D printing, and more. We can guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have.

Solidworks

Solidworks is a premier 3D CAD software, used by Engineers, Designers, and Machinists. With nearly 20 years experience with Solidworks, Rotatek offers its customers value in design. The softwares robust feature set lets us design parts and assemblies with efficiency and allow direct manufacturing from many of its file types. These files can be used for 3D CAM program for machining, 2D Laser and water jet applications, or rapid prototype 3D printing.

PolyWorks Modeler

PolyWorks|Modeler™ is a comprehensive reverse-engineering software solution that allows extracting optimal CAD entities—curves, surfaces, parametric sketches, and prismatic features—from polygonal models of digitized parts to serve as the starting point in your professional CAD modeling solution. Raw scan data can be converted to usable cad models in less time than other software suites. Complex and organic geometry are challenging tasks well suited for Polyworks software.
