From Scan to NC: Reverse Engineering for CAM Applications


Time is money, and any time that your machines are sat idle, your business is losing out. So how can you spend more time cutting and less time rebuilding CAD that is ready to program accurate toolpaths?

In this webinar, we are joined by Joel Pollet, Third-Party Sales Manager at Cimquest, to showcase how, with the right Reverse Engineering tool, you can reduce your time-to-NC-code, program and cut more parts, and make your shop floor more productive.

In this webinar, Joel will teach you:

  • How the right engineering tool, like Geomagic Design X Essentials, can process scan or point-cloud data from a 3D scanner, and produce fully usable neutral CAD models, just like your favourite CAD system.
  • How this CAD data can be used to program G02/G03 circular moves and G81/G83 point-to-point toolpaths, perfect for any basic 2-axis milling or turning application.
  • How Design X Essentials can be used to create even the most complex 3D surface lofts, sweeps and guide curves, to be used in the programming of 3, 4 and 5-axis toolpaths.
