30 on 3D: Next Engine 3D Scanning & Reverse Engineering

Purple Platypus

To kick off our first episode, we are taking a glance at reverse engineering using the power of 3D scanning technology. Recently, Senior Research and Development Engineer, Peter Montgomery, used 3D scanning and reverse engineering to create a holding fixture for a component. To do this, he scanned the part at several different angles using our Next Engine 3D scanner, then merged those scans together to form a CAD parametric.

Prior to doing 3D modeling I used to (and still do) railway modeling the usual ways — build kits or ‘bash’ them — modifying them to represent a different version of an engine, either real or theoretical. You have to buy your own wheels, motors and bits for the printed model but once done, it’s great to see the engine you’ve always longed for pottering about on a layout.
