3D printing Reverse Engineering

Scanned 3D data has traditionally been used in many industries as part of their design processes. Previously, this required a time-consuming and sometimes difficult process. Irregular shapes, in particular, necessitated extensive reverse engineering in order to be used for 3D printing, mould design, analysis, and other purposes. NX allows you to import scanned data as facets, eliminating the need to map surfaces, create solids, or create any other manually created shapes. You can scan your data and begin building supports for 3D printing, creating moulds based on the shape, including it in an assembly, analysing it, or performing any other operation that you would do with CAD data right away.

Reverse Engineering is made up of powerful features that allow you to build a custom solution. Read more about these features below.

Convergent Technology

Convergent Modeling TM Technology, the first of its kind, enables designers to combine facets, surfaces, and solids in a single model without converting data. Facet data can now be used as an equal part of the design process.

Import Scanned Data

Import and optimise scanned data quickly. NX directly imports polygon facet data obtained by scanning physical objects. NX allows you to import scanned data as facets, eliminating the need to map surfaces, create solids, or create any other manual shapes. You can scan your data and begin building 3D printing supports right away.
