Reverse Engineering Video Series

Creating a Sound Design:
Refurbishing a Set of Headphones

Broken Headphones DesignPoint Will Reverse Engineer

Welcome to DesignPoint’s Reverse Engineering Video Series! This series will walk you through how to reverse engineer a plastic component from a set of broken headphones and prepare it for manufacturing or 3D printing — without the hassle of using calipers, micrometers, calculators and other antiquated tools.

For each major step in the reverse engineering process, you’ll find a detailed video that encompasses how SOLIDWORKS software and state-of-the-art 3D hardware can speed up your process with unmatched accuracy. Watch how this technology can help you rapidly recover lost data, prevent future design failures before prototyping and determine the best way to manufacture this plastic part.

Part 1: Reverse Engineering With
the Geomagic Capture Scanner

Imagine being able to capture anything in the physical world and have a digital model of it within minutes. Now, that vision is a reality with 3D scanning technology. In part one, you will learn how to scan accurate geometries from a broken, plastic connector from a set of headphones and prepare the data for import into SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software.

Part 2: Reverse Engineering With
Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS

See how easy it is to manipulate 3D scanned data with SOLIDWORKS. In part two, you will learn how to reverse engineer a plastic component from a set of headphones using the Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS add-in.

Part 3: Simulating a Plastic Part
With SOLIDWORKS Simulation

Prevent future design failures by knowing exactly when and how your product will fail. In part three, you will learn how to run studies on a broken plastic part from a set of headphones in SOLIDWORKS Simulation to prevent it from breaking again!
