Course description

This workshop allows you to develop a greater understanding of 3D scanning and reverse engineering, using some of the most advanced equipment available. The course is ideal if you have a physical part/item but no drawing or CAD and you would like to learn more about how you reproduce the part or how you can modify it.

Reverse engineering provides important insights into the design and architecture of man-made objects in order to extract knowledge from the object. 3D scanning can be a great complementary tool as it can analyse the real-world object or environment, collect data on its shape and possibly its appearance, and the collected data can then be used to construct digital 3D models.
