Everything You Need To Know About 3D Reverse Engineering

3D scanning has allowed high-quality likenesses, molds, prototypes, and parts for products and research. 

Because automotive engineers, aerospace technicians, and medical researchers use molds, casts, and printed parts to better analyze and improve their methods, they need the highest quality scans possible.

If a 3D scanner misreads data, the resulting research would be lacking in clarity and precision. Reverse engineering scanners have greatly supplemented the production process. It allows engineers to measure accurate data and reproduce objects almost exactly as they were first manufactured.

Being able to deconstruct an object to study its architecture and intricacies is crucial for competitive data analysis. Laser 3D reverse engineering gives manufacturers the information they need to increase a product’s usability, prevent future errors, and make necessary improvements.


What is the best 3d scanner for reverse engineering?

Here at 3D2GO, we want to ensure quality for our customers. 3D scanners make it easy to get the information we need for the recreation and improvement of products. 

But measuring 3D data accurately means we’ll have to know which scanners work best and why.

We’ve compiled a list of advantages of all kinds of 3D scanners.

Laser-based 3D Scanners

  1.   Scan rough surfaces, such as shiny or dark finishes
  2.   Lesser sensitive: to changing light conditions and ambient light
  3.   Portable
  4.   Simple design, easy to use, and low cost.

Projected or Structured Light 3D Scanners

  1.   Fast scan times, as fast as 2 seconds per scan
  2.   Large scanning area, as large as 48 inches in a single scan
  3.   High resolution, as high as 16 million points per scan and 16-micron (.00062”) point spacing
  4.   Very high accuracy, as high as 10 microns (.00039”)
  5.   Versatile – Multiple lenses to scan small to large parts in a single system
  6.   Portable – Handheld systems are very portable
  7.   Eye safe for 3D scanning of humans and animals
  8.   Various price points from low cost to expensive depending on resolution and accuracy

Long Range 3D Scanners

  1.   3D Scan millions of points in a single scan –up to 1 million points per second
  2.   Large scanning area more than 1000 Sq. meters
  3.   Good accuracy and resolution based on object size
  4.   Non-contact to safely scan all types of objects
  5.   Portable

Along with these scanners are scanning technologies/methods that make them the best scanners in the field.


This technology involves stitching together photographs of an object taken from different angles. 

The photos are taken using a camera or even your smartphone with specific camera settings, while the stitching of those photos is done by special software. The software identifies pixels that correspond to the same physical point and brings pictures together accordingly.

Parameters like the focal length of the lens and its distortion need to be fed into the software by the user to create an accurate model. 

The big advantage of using photogrammetry is its accuracy level and the speed with which the data of an object is acquired.

Photogrammetry is so simple that you can pick up your phone right now and start taking pictures.

Contact scanning

This method involves physical contact of a probe onto the surface of the object being scanned.

First, the object is firmly held in place so that it does not move. Then, the touching probe is moved all over the object in order to collect data. 

A major benefit of this method is that it can also scan the surface of the object. 

Contact 3D scanning is interestingly used to perform quality control in industrial fabrication. Parts that have been newly fabricated can be checked for any deformations or damages using contact scanning.
