Creating a Sound Design Part 1: Reverse Engineering With the Geomagic Capture Scanner [Webinar]

Last Updated on by DesignPoint Team

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. Join us as we prepare this part for manufacturing or 3D printing without the hassle of using calipers, micrometers, calculators and other antiquated tools.

Broken Headphones for Reverse Engineering

For each major step in the reverse engineering process, we’ll create 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 physical 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. Learn how to make this possibility a reality by watching this webinar with Andrés Lesmes, an applications engineer, at DesignPoint.

In part one of this webinar series, you will learn how to scan accurate geometries from a broken plastic connector to a set of headphones and prepare the data for import into SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software.

In just 20 minutes, you’ll learn how to:

  • Prepare your part for 3D scanning
  • 3D scan your part
  • Align your scans
  • Prepare associated data for export

3D scanning technology makes your job easier by capturing design data with pristine accuracy and allows you to work more effectively and more efficiently.

If you’ve enjoyed part 1 of this video series, keep an eye out for additional webinars. We’ll take this plastic component and reverse engineer it within SOLIDWORKS, run studies to prevent it from breaking again with SOLIDWORKS Simulation and determine the best way to manufacture this part by setting up and running an injection mold study with SOLIDWORKS Plastics!
