Legacy Systems & Aftermarket Parts

Our legacy systems and aftermarket parts solution is aimed at recreating parts or components that the OEM has stopped producing, or an alternative is needed to the one produced by the OEM. Our solution uses the Scan-to-CAD approach, where we use our in-house 3D scanners to create a 3D digital copy of the physical object for use as a reference. This is combined with our 20+ years of experience in mechanical design and engineering.

Modifying Existing Systems

Our modifying existing systems solution is a hybrid solution that combines our Scan-to-CAD workflow with our knowledge and experience in the field of mechanical design and engineering to modify and build upon a part or component. Our experience allows us to keep the modifications we make compatible with the existing manufacturing process, while adhering to DFMA methodology and keeping the cost of manufacturing low.

Bioengineering Applications

This application combines our knowledge of engineering with the field of life sciences to solve problems related to biology, health care, sports medicine and other fields. Our Scan-to-CAD solution for such applications skips the reverse engineering part, and uses the scanned mesh, which is freeform and organic in shape, as a reference to create CAD geometry around it. This lets us design intricate products around complex geometries.

Packaging and Mold Design

Our packaging and mold design solution primarily focuses on combining 3D scanned parts with freeform or complex organic shapes to CAD primitives to create a mold for use in split-cast molds and molds for thermoforming. We use our Scan-to-CAD knowledge to create a 3D parting line around complex freeform geometries. In addition, we can combine our in-house 3D printing services to create precise physical molds.

Scan-to-Inspection

Our Scan-to-Inspection solution uses our in-house 3D scanning service to offer various inspection services such as; part to CAD inspection, first article inspection (FAI), and inspection for raw forging and casting. Our in-house 3D scanners are used to digitize accurate 3D scanned meshes that can be compared to the CAD model to check for deviations between them. We can provide color map and pin-point errors in the report for documentation.

Heritage and Digital Preservation

Our Heritage and Digital preservation solution is aimed at preserving and archiving artifacts and art pieces. Digitization of artifacts help museums better document and classify them, while ensuring that future generations will be able to appreciate them in case of deterioration or damage. Digitization can also assist curators in artifact restoration. Our 3D scanning solution combines 3D scanned meshes with high-resolution texture data.

Research and Analysis

Our Research and Analysis solution builds upon our Heritage and Digital Preservation solution. The digitizing is aimed at making it easier to share them with researchers. It is a viable solution for archeologists and paleontologists who are out in the field without the proper equipment to send the scanned data to a laboratory for proper analysis. Our portable 3D scanner coupled with our willingness to travel makes us a great solution.

Product Design

Product design is the process of creating a product from the idea phase all the way to the prototype phase and ultimately to manufacturing. A typical product design process starts out with an idea, followed by a design concept, 3D model in a CAD software, to detail drawings for manufacturing. In most cases, a prototype is made base on the final model before manufacturing to avoid and rule out any errors or flaws in the design.

2D To 3D CAD Conversion

Many companies have 2D drawings of equipment and parts that are in digital and hard-copy format, however, due to limited resources are unable to convert them into 3D models. Our expertise with various CAD software and our ability to read and understand 2D drawings of all types from most of the major industries lets us assist our customers in converting their 2D drawings to 3D models in a timely and cost-effective way.

Sheetmetal and Weldments

Sheetmetal and weldments are an integral and fundamental form of metalworking used in countless everyday objects and equipment from most of the major industries. Designing with sheet metal and weldments is a complex process, and require years of knowledge and experience. Our combined understanding in sheet metal and weldments of over two decades allows us to save time and be cost-effective for our customers.

Pipe Routing and Fabrication

In the industrial sector pipe-routing combined with knowledge and experience in fabrication and machining is also important. Without the proper experience in fabrication and machining practices, companies can suffer huge costs when piping cannot be installed on-site as per the design. In addition, our experience in these three areas can allow companies to design a more efficient and cost-effective system.

Technical Inspections

Technical inspections require personnel to examine structures by sight. Considerable resources such as scaffolding, cranes and other equipment is needed which can be costly and possess a high risk to the individual. Our UAV based solution is capable of performing such inspections at a fraction of the time while eliminating the cost of other equipment powering them down in case of dynamic structures like wind turbines.

Lidar Scanning (Coming Soon)

Lidar is a form of 3D scanning that utilizes laser light to create a 3D representation of the target. Lidar scanning has a few advantages over photogrammetry-based 3D scanning such as the ability to operate in low-light conditions, penetrate to the ground surface in areas with heavy foliage, and capture data in all directions instead of just one plane.
