Aluminum casting tools precisely by reverse engineering

Aluminum casting tools with high precision

Generate optimal CAD data from the original model through 3D Scan.

Aluminum casting tools from your original model

3D scanning is as easy as cooking coffee.

Professional and affordable digitalization of tools is now available to anyone with little effort and a 3D scanner. Create your own scan data on-site and benefit from very fast transit times, low costs and easy communication.
Of course we can also provide you with a 3D scan of your parts.

Reverse engineering of your scanned data is not as easy as cooking coffee.

Similar to grandmother baking cake, the reconstruction of your scanned STL data requires years of professional experience in reverse engineering. The specialized engineer is going to use the scan points to recognize the logic of the workpiece and replaces these points with CAD-capable surfaces. We proceed your Scandata with reverse-engineering into your desired CAD data format.
Based on the scan data we construct a CAD / CAM capable solid model. You can choose between a parametrically constructed design, a surface reconstruction in a STEP / IGES model or a combination of both.
Parametric regular geometries and free-form constructed surfaces are created natively in Solidworks, Catia or CREO. For STEP or IGES models we use SiemensNX or DesignX (Geomagic) - further sample data can be found in the download link below.
Tolerances of 3 - 5 /100 mm are possible with recent scanning systems. The manual and logical reverse-engineering of scan data guarantees that deviations out of the scan file are removed in the new dataset. A 90° scaned angle will manually be replaced with a 90° solid angel. Any automated software process would completely copy all tolerances out of the scan instaed of providing you with clean surfaces.

With the finished data your aluminum cating tool can be created immediately.
