PTC Creo Reverse Engineering Extension (REX) helps you to easily create or recreate the electronic 3D CAD model of your physical product, without spending an enormous amount of time, effort, or money.
With the cutting edge tools in Creo Reverse Engineering, you can refine the point cloud and polygonal data, reducing noise and/or the total number of points. This way you can speed up processing time, without sacrificing the level of detail, while preserving design intent. From there, you can quickly a facet model. Surfaces can be projected to fit facet data, or boundary surfaces created from curves sketched on the facet model. Or, take advantage of the geometric surface options such as planar, cylindrical, extruded or revolved surfaces to create true analytic geometry.
Once a surface is created, you can use the full set of Creo analysis tools for surface analysis, and to check for any deviation between the surface and facet data. Creo Reverse Engineering captures physical characteristics such as surface tangency, ensuring that the design intent is preserved 100%.
From the moment information is imported, you are on your way to a product. You can recreate the CAD data for a product for mass-production, or re-use the information for highly customizable products.Creo Reverse Engineering gives you the flexibility to design new, more innovative products that will win in today's competitive environment. Whether you are reverse engineering from a complex sculpted clay model, or from a scanned engineered mounting plate, Creo Reverse Engineering will enable you to get it right the first time.
Reduce costs and shorten development time by automating the process of reverse engineering a physical prototype
Simplify the workflow, and minimize the learning curve, by using the same CAD program you use to design your products to also reverse engineer a product
Reduce noise in point cloud data for more accurate product designs
Maintain data integrity by accurately capturing the design intent of the original product
Automate the manual process of transforming scan data into manufacturable surfaces
Easily update old designs without their original digital data to meet new market requirements
Analyze the differences between the completed model and the facet data to verify accuracy
