During the work of mechanical devices, their components are subject to slow wear resulting from friction, tension, or corrosion. This usually results in cracking. The cracking or systematic scuffing of the mechanical parts is a frequent problem in all industries. The easiest way to fix such deficiencies is to replace the element with a new one. However, the creation of a copy is usually prevented by the lack of technical documentation. The workshop attempts at reconstructing the worn element (e.g. welding) usually fail to provide the desired result.
Recent years have seen the rise of the popularity of reverse engineering, which allows for quick reconstruction of the technical documentation and subsequent creation of an accurate substitute.
3D scanning allows for quick development of the element documentation and reconstruction of the CAD model with high precision (tolerance of 0.01 mm).
