CREATE STL TO STEP FILE USING REVERSE ENGINEERING

Create Step File accurately and cheaply.

Generate optimal STEP files with Reverse Engineering.

CREATE STEP FILE FROM THE STL OF A 3D SCAN

3D Scanning of the object

The first step in the STL to STEP conversion is the 3D scanning of your object. The professional and inexpensive digitization of objects is now possible for everyone with little effort and a 3D scanner. You create your STL data on site and benefit from very fast runtimes, low costs and easy communication.
Of course, we can also provide you with a 3D scan of your objects.

Editing of the 3D Scan data

The 2nd step in STL to STEP is the conversion of the point cloud generated in the 3D scan into CAD data. The preparation of your scanned STL data requires years of experience from professional engineers in the reconstruction in CAD. The specialist engineer recognizes the logic of the object based on the scan points and replaces these points with CAD-capable surfaces.
Based on the scan data we construct a CAD / CAM capable solid model. You can choose between a parametrically constructed design, a surface reconstruction in a STEP / IGES model or a combination of both.
Parametric regular geometries and free-form constructed surfaces are created natively in Solidworks, Catia or CREO. For STEP or IGES models we use SiemensNX or DesignX (Geomagic) - further sample data can be found in the download link below.
Tolerances of 3 - 5 /100 mm are possible with recent scanning systems. The manual and logical reverse-engineering of scan data guarantees that deviations out of the scan file are removed in the new dataset. A 90° scaned angle will manually be replaced with a 90° solid angel. Any automated software process would completely copy all tolerances out of the scan instaed of providing you with clean surfaces.

Your tool can be created immediately with the finished data.
