Stage 2 - Reverse Engineering

Using our Global co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM), dimensions were taken from the client’s fabrication and a CAD model was generated using Solidworks CAD software. This was then printed on our Dimension 3D printer (rapid prototype) and sent straight to the actual car being assembled to double-check the fit.

The model was then modifed to reflect the filled part and another rapid prototype made and sent to customer, once this was fitted and the fit confirmed the finished article was made on the OKK 5 axis machine using the same model after generating the machine code using hyper mill CAM system.
