During April’s Meetup, we will introduce you to the latest tools which are being utilized to reverse engineer parts. There will be presentations on both a handheld 3D laser scanner and scanning software. Also, we’ll also demonstrate the capabilities of reverse engineering software. This software converts STL files, which are exported by the laser scanner, into a fully functional 3D CAD model complete with a feature tree. This type of file allows an engineer to make design improvements and print or manufacture a part.
Computer Aided Technology (CATI) will join us as a co-presenter. Since 1992, CATI has made it their mission to curate, deliver and support the best product development solutions available.
Cost: $10, includes networking, food, and drink
