3D Scanning, Reverse Engineering & Inspection Services

CDG have over 20 years experience in 3D scanning, reverse engineering and inspection. We can scan pieces at our offices or on-site. If required, we can travel anywhere in the UK or beyond as the equipment is portable. We operate a large range of high-end 3D scanners.

3D Scanning Services

  • On or off-site
  • Scan to Polygons, Surfaces, Solids, CAD
  • Reverse engineer to IGES, STEP or native-CAD format
  • Output for SolidWorks, Creo, Solid Edge, NX, Inventor, Catia, Cimatron etc.
  • Photogrammetry for large objects
  • Inspection reports

Accuracy & Resolution

  • The most accurate setting enables us to scan small objects from 3 microns (0.003mm).
  • The maximum resolution is a point spacing of 20 microns (0.02mm).
  • Accuracy & resolution will be selected to suit object size and level of fine detail.

Size of Object

  • Minimum is the size of a pin
  • Maximum standard size is 8 metres
  • Up to 50 metres with Photogrammetry


Options include:-

  • Compare to CAD
  • Compare to master part
  • Create 3D analysis
  • Measure 2D dimensions
  • Tolerance analysis
  • Trend analysis
