Reverse engineering

Reverse engineering

In manufacturing, reverse engineering makes it possible to produce, or reproduce. objects using the physical object itself as a guide. The process is only possible with an accurate and high resolution 3D scanner to gather data from the object's surface. With 3D scanning from peel 3D, you can get going in a matter of minutes.

Never run out of spare parts again

Reverse engineering is a process which means that you 3D scan and measure a physical object and then reconstruct it as a 3D model to recover the design. The goal is to end up with a perfect reconstruction of the original design in order to produce a new reference CAD model that you can 3D print.

Whether it’s repairing a broken or worn out part that can’t be ordered from anywhere, or creating a digital warehouse – 3D scanning is your first step.

Featuring smooth and high detail scans plus intelligent software to help you clean scans before importing in a CAD software, peel 3D scanners get the job done.

Peel 3D portfolio

Peel 1

A professional 3D scanner in its purest, most affordable form. It is perfect for the human body and organic shapes

Peel 2

Perfect for mechanical components. improved tracking, better geometry capabilities and enhanced means to capture colors.

Peel 2-S

Optimized to scan smaller parts. Its smaller field of view provides it with a whopping resolution of up to 0.1 mm

3D scanning for:

Reverse engineering

3D scan defunct or broken parts, edit and 3D print for spare parts on demand or custom made parts.

Human scanning

3D scan to design and 3D print personalized orthoses and prosthetics for better fit.

Art preservation

3D scan and store invaluable objects or 3D print objects to create stunning, authentic replicas.

Quality control

3D scan your prints regardless of print technology to make sure they fit the bill.
