Reversible engineering is a method of engineering that turns the production cycle in the opposite direction. The finished product is reconstructed into a shape from which new parts and tools can be made.
Reversible engineering is the digitization of an existing part, assembly, or product that does not have technical documentation or a CAD model. It is also defined as the process of obtaining a CAD model from spatial points obtained by digitization (scanning or similar processes) of an actual part or product. It is used in various fields of science and technology, such as manufacturing, product development, and design, medicine, architecture, archeology and in many other segments that require digitization of real parts. When it comes to developing new products, reversible engineering has a significant role to play in accelerating this process.
