Reverse Engineering | 3 Common Challenges to Avoid

“It’s always beautiful, when the mirror is clean”.

How is this statement applied to Reverse Engineering?! Let’s See!

Reverse engineering is widely used in a broad range of industries for various types of applications. It’s the concept of conversion the physical models to digital ones so that manufacturers and product developers can study and improve the technicalities in the manufacturing process. In other words, it works as a Digital Mirror”.

It’s not as easy as it sounds, there are many requirements you need to guarantee to keep your Digital Mirror clean AKA to have “Successful Reverse Engineering process”

In the upcoming lines, we discuss with you some common reverse engineering challenges you might face:

1.     Right Equipment: “What you have doesn’t fit!”

Projects or requests can’t be predicted, however can be prepared for. The object itself controls your choices due to differences in the size, shape, and surface characteristics. The level of accuracy is also a vital factor to get the desirable result. These factors impact the types of 3D scanning equipment that are most suitable for the project.


To solve this problem, you can either purchase new equipment that matches your needs (Which will cost you a number of dollars) or outsource to a lab or a company that has the necessary tools.


2.     Right Software: “Is it compatible?”


It is essential to have the right software tools to effectively use your 3D Scanning data. It should be compatible with your equipment and any other used software program. The experienced provider would be a good solution to cut the hassle of software selection if you don’t have the tools in-house. In some cases, the selection of the ideal equipment is based on the required data of the project.

3.     Right Skills/Application: “The WHO?”


Now after you have the “what”, do you have the “Who”. Right equipment and right software without trained and skilled team will not complete the job. Not all companies have this magical mix of skills for reverse engineering. Having data that you can’t make use of it, is an industrial nightmare. To solve this problem, you can train your existing employees or work hand in hand with a qualified provider.
