What is Reverse Engineering?

In the world of precision engineering, reverse engineering is the process of taking apart a product in order to find out how it is designed and made. Once this has been deduced, it will then be possible to mass produce the item to meet the exact specifications.

While regular engineering involves the creation of parts and products using precise diagrams and measurements, reverse engineering is the opposite. It is predominantly used where technical drawings are not available and there is no way of knowing how the item was made.

Reverse Engineering begins by using 3D scanning software to get dimensional information of the item. The product is also taken apart to assess its internal mechanisms. Once all the information has been obtained, the data is used to make CAD drawings to help the manufacturing process.
