What is Reverse Engineering?
Per Wikipedia’s definition: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reverse_engineering:
Reverse engineering is the process of discovering the technological principles of a device, object or system through analysis of its structure, function and operation. It often involves taking something (e.g., a mechanical device, electronic component, biological, chemical or organic matter or software program) apart and analyzing its workings in detail to be used in maintenance, or to try to make a new device or program that does the same thing without using or simply duplicating (without understanding) the original.
Reverse engineering has its origins in the analysis of hardware for commercial or military advantage. The purpose is to deduce design decisions from end products with little or no additional knowledge about the procedures involved in the original production. The same techniques are subsequently being researched for application to legacy software systems, not for industrial or defence ends, but rather to replace incorrect, incomplete, or otherwise unavailable documentation.
ReverseEngineering.com, a Certified SolidWorks Gold Partner reverse engineering plug-in, now supports non-contact measurement capabilities for Point Cloud to Mesh Surface for Solidworks. ReverseEngineering.com provides an easy to learn four- step workflow, for mesh surface creation:
- Set Alignment, 2-Laser Scan, 3-Process Point Cloud, 4-Create Surface Mesh.
- Optimized dialog boxes allow for quick processing of large point clouds for profile extraction and surface mesh visualization.
- Process millions of points in seconds for parametric modeling in Solidworks, while working direct in both SolidWorks Standard and SolidWorks Premium allowing for STL support.
- Transform and reduce large point clouds for Solidworks to work with even after the data capture device is disconnected.
- Simplify the extraction of geometric entities on digitized models, accelerating the development of parametric wireframe, surface and solid models in SolidWorks.
Please note: All individuals will be required to show proof of identification prior to collecting their badge and registration materials. Attendees must be 21 years or older to attend SolidWorks World 2012. Also residents of some countries may require a visa to enter the United States.
Don’t forget, if you pay for two registrations, a third participant can hang in for free. And, as always, CSWPs save $100. You can see all of registration deals at the SolidWorks World website.
