Reverse engineering is the process of taking a finished product and reconstructing design data in a format from which new parts or molds can be produced.

Rapid 3D Inspection

When your first part is in hand, you need inspection results fast. We'll turn your full 3D color comparison-to-CAD back to you in a few short days so you can keep your project on track.

For the most rapid response, receive an instant quote and purchase your scan-and-compare service online! Results are delivered to you in 48 hours or less from receipt of your parts.

Ask a question about Scanning

Our engineers have extensive precision tooling knowledge and experience. Scan results are accurate to less than 1 micron in certain applications. Some of the options available to you with this output are:

Shrink analysis with exact deviations of selected points.




3D error and shrink analysis with exact deviations of selected points.







Thickness data across the entire surface of an object.






Statistical analysis of results.





GD&T results














Fillet, radii assessment.














Full color cross-sectional deviations.










Computer-aided verification is a process by which point clouds—which typically have millions of points—are compared to surface models. A color map is created, providing a quick and effective way to verify the accuracy of a modeled geometry.

This is the process that allows for the most rapid assessment of part accuracy – most results reported in 48 hours or less. The most accurate scanning technology is used on 4 laser platforms, from micro to several feet in size, so you receive the best data for making decisions.
