The castings for the classic rare cars and classic Harley Davidson motorcycles would never have been replicated if not for reverse engineering technology. This breakthrough makes use of laser imaging of complicated 3D objects, allowing the users to rebuild the plans or blueprints of many life-saving devices, luxury vehicles, airplanes and other machines. assimilates the MicroScribe with the Kreon Skiron laser scanning machinery using patented reverse engineering technology to accommodate the industries in the aviation, defense and other sectors.

Thanks to, the software for this technology is made easily available to those who need to rebuild or enhance on existing objects which no longer have the initial plans or that can be best enhanced through 3D laser imaging.

If you are hooked on older autos or bikes, then you would have understood a long time ago how difficult and expensive it is to get castings of the parts, specifically when the original plans are gone or have been destroyed. Manufacturers used to consider this a nightmare especially when they needed to come up with an enhanced version of these specific vehicles. OEM Castings are usually made available only for repairs or for a handful of vehicles. What happens when the castings or OEM parts no longer exist?

The auto-racing industry is one of those that characteristically has a special need for laser scanning with reverse engineering. Racing is a specially risky career, and while the drivers are livewires and push their limits, they would not be so absentminded to careen down the track at 180 miles per hour without any assurance that the suspension parts in his or her vehicle will work. makes sure that the moldings for vehicles are exactly recreated. It would normally take a lot of money to do that, but thanks to reverse engineering it is now feasible to reproduce very precise castings in a cost-effective way.

Most vintage autos are limited production and that also is applicable for the technical documentation. Via reverse engineering, manufacturers can reproduce the parts and every nook and cranny of the autos with minimal effort, while keeping exact to their geometry.

Not long ago, manufacturers were discouraged when they visited all the professional foundries only to see that they could not reproduce the casts. Apparently, the skill levels of the original producers were way beyond what the current generation could match. With the MicroScribe 3D laser imaging, manufacturers can now recreate a 3D digital replication of the vehicles and build a database that will aid them in improving current technology.

The finest facet about MicroScribe’s reverse engineering machines is that they are able to precisely create 3D computer models of almost all objects, whatever the size and shape. And those things can effortlessly be accomplished in the span of a few minutes! The tangible world has almost become conquerable thanks to reverse engineering technology.

Imagine how manufacturers can further existing technology for race cars and you will understand that the present speed known to humanity may just be history in a short time. With reverse engineering, it is quite easy to be amazed with the many opportunities and potential that we can achieve nowadays not only in the industry of racing and car production but also in science, animation and the arts.
