This video from Boxford demonstrates 3D scanning and reverse engineering of products using a 3D scanning machine. The 3D scanning machine is shown followed by the object, an ornamental cat, which is to be reverse engineered. Full 360 degree laser scanning of the ornament is performed. The scanned object is then imported into ScanStudio software and machining of the object is simulated using software. The 4th axis accessory is then used to cut the object on the CNC machine. Finally a comparison is shown of the original object and the finished routed piece. Curriculum links include the use of CAD/CAM in the designing, simulating and making of a product and the use of scanning technology to reverse engineer products.
