What is Reverse Engineering?

Reverse Engineering involves thoroughly examining the structure and composition of an object in order to replicate it. By capturing scan data from the physical item, we can create a robust CAD format that allows for the faithful reconstruction of the original object through re-engineering.

Automotive Reverse Engineering

Our Approach

We employ a comprehensive and systematic approach to reverse engineering, ensuring accurate and reliable results. Our experienced team of engineers and technicians utilise state-of-the-art technologies and equipment to carry out the following steps:

  • Data Capture: We employ advanced 3D scanning techniques to capture precise geometric data from the vehicle, capturing every intricate detail of the car part or system. This non-destructive method ensures minimal disruption to your original product.

  • CAD Modelling: Using the acquired scan data, our experts create high-quality computer-aided design (CAD) models of the car parts. These digital models accurately represent the original component, allowing for seamless integration into your design and manufacturing processes.

  • Analysis and Evaluation: Our engineers conduct in-depth analysis and evaluation of the captured data and CAD models. This step helps identify design flaws, assess performance characteristics, and optimise the component for enhanced functionality and efficiency.

  • Product Enhancement and Customisation: Through reverse engineering, we enable you to enhance and customise existing automotive components or systems. This includes modifying designs to incorporate new features, improving performance, or adapting them to fit into new vehicle platforms.


At 3D Scanners Ltd, we provide a comprehensive selection of technical services aimed at enhancing the integration of PolyWorks® software within the operational workflows of our automotive clients. With a track record as the dominant player in point-cloud-based inspection and analysis for the automotive sector since 2001, PolyWorks® has become the go-to solution for leading automotive OEMs and tier-one suppliers, setting the industry standard for portable metrology.
