Reverse Engineering - Design & Analysis:

Our 3D laser scanner allows DeepWater to meet our customers requirements for creating or recreating new designs from existing and sometimes obsolete products or components, or even old parts that may have been developed without the use of CAD. The REVscan has proven particularly efficient at accelerating and facilitating the product design, creation and prototype analysis processes, while reducing related costs. The REVscan turns out to be very powerful for tasks such as:

  • Class A surfacing
  • 3D modeling
  • Surface reconstruction
  • Mechanical design
  • Tooling & jigs development
  • Maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO)
  • Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
  • Inspection: Scanning and measuring of objects of any size, in various environments. Non contact, first-article and supplier quality inspection.

Other applications include 3D scanning of existing objects, 3D archiving, complex shape acquisition, measurements archiving, damage assessment, digital models and mock-ups, packaging design and rapid prototyping.

The MaxShot product adds the accuracy and speed of photogrammetry to the wide range of applications already possible with Creaform technologies, especially when it comes to larger parts.Creaform is renowned for the portable, reliable and very easy-to-use technologies it designs. In concrete terms, the system, combining the MaxSHOT 3D photogrammetric video camera and the VXshot processing software, stands out from other systems because it is so easy to use. Its user-friendly design allows even those new to photogrammetry to quickly and easily generate a high accuracy positioning model of an object based on a series of photos. All you have to do is simply place a few coded targets either on the object to be measured or in its environment. Then, you take several blocks of convergent photos and launch the bundle adjustment process (image triangulation). Through this process, the reflectors placed on the object can be easily rebuilt in 3D. The scale bars provided in the measurement volume allow for model scaling.Once the calculations are complete, the Creaform 3D scanner automatically uses the high accuracy positioning model generated in VXelements to determine its position in the measurement volume.
