Engineering industry professionals use 3D technologies for anything from reverse engineering to creating prototypes.
Reverse engineering or scan based design utilising tools like 3D scanners makes the process simpler, faster, more accurate and relatively inexpensive. Whether it is an old mould with no drawings which needs to be reproduced or a bespoke component designed to fit an existing product 3D scanning is the most cost effective way to achieve the end result.
3D printers are used to quickly and inexpensively produce accurate prototypes, or working parts, in a wide variety of materials.

Feature: Nika Holding automotive accessories
Nika Holding produces mats based on a method that is impossible without scanning. Computer processing of the data ensures a perfect fit of a pattern to the automobile surface. After researching the market for existing technologies, the company tried the M Model scanner made by Artec.
“In choosing this particular model, we knew we needed a rather compact device so that it would be easy to scan with it in the tight confines of a car interior. Also, the scanner would often be used in production in conditions where the sturdiness of the casing would be especially important,” comments an employee at Nika Holding.
eBook: Guide To Large-Format Additive
Increasing the build size increases the possibilities for builds: users can create larger parts, removing the constraints of more standard sizes of build envelopes. 3D printing a large part all at once means less time is spent designing around multiple print jobs, less time assembling multiple parts, and more time getting those parts to work for you.
Discover in the guide,
- How to get started
- Why Size Matters
- How to integrate
- 4 Applications that Benefit from large-format additive
- Case Studies from industry leading companies like Ford, Steel Case and more.
