3D Redesign of broken or no longer available parts

3D Redesign of broken or no longer available parts

As part of our 3D services range we can fully CAD redesign broken or no longer available parts/components. Here are some examples of 3D scans turned into a new CAD files ready to be 3D printed or CNC milled. For more information regarding our 3D services Get in touch.

Here is a brief explaination of the workflow:

  • 3D Scanning: The broken part is scanned using a 3D scanner to create a digital model of its current state. This captures the geometry and dimensions of the broken part, providing a starting point for the redesign process.
  • Analysis and Evaluation: Once the scan data is obtained, it's analyzed to understand the original design intent of the part. This step helps inform the redesign process and ensures that the new part will be stronger and more durable.
  • CAD Redesign (Reverse Engineering): Based on the analysis, the digital model of the broken part is imported into computer-aided design (CAD) software. Here, we can modify the geometry, adjust dimensions, and optimize the design to address any issues identified during the analysis phase. This could involve strengthening weak points, improving functionality, or incorporating new features.
  • Iterative Design Process: : Redesigning a part often involves multiple iterations of refinement. We are able to create several versions of the redesigned part, each incorporating different changes or improvements. These iterations are evaluated through simulations, prototyping, or testing to ensure that the final design meets the desired requirements and specifications.
  • 3D Printing of Prototypes: Once the redesigned part is finalized in the CAD software, it can be sent to a 3D printer to produce physical prototypes. 3D printing allows for rapid prototyping, enabling us to quickly iterate on the design and test different variations before committing to full-scale production.
  • Testing and Validation: The printed prototypes are tested to evaluate their performance, functionality, and fit within the system or assembly. This could involve mechanical testing, stress analysis, or functional testing to ensure that the redesigned part meets the required standards and specifications.
