Reverse Engineering and Additive Manufacturing

Kanoo, in partnership with Imaginarium, offers reverse engineering, additive manufacturing, or 3D printing.

  • Additive manufacturing is a cutting-edge technology adopted in the manufacturing industry.
  • Additive manufacturing, commonly referred to as 3D printing, is the process where a 3D CAD model is transformed into a physical object by adding material layer by layer. It doesn’t require special tools like cutting tools or molds since the part is directly produced or printed onto a print bed. Additive manufacturing is employed for rapid manufacturing, rapid prototyping, and rapid tooling, creating a master via 3D printing.
  • It is primarily used to create physical models, prototypes, patterns, tooling components, and production parts in materials such as plastics, metals, glass, ceramics, composites, and biomaterials. Companies opt for additive manufacturing to streamline and accelerate the product development process, using it as a product visualization tool to refine designs before market release.
  • Additive manufacturing is used for producing show or concept models, production parts, spare parts, rapid product prototyping, rapid manufacturing, and rapid tooling. In contrast to traditional subtractive or formative methods, where an object is made by removing material through carving or shaping, additive manufacturing builds objects layer by layer based on a computer-generated 3D model.
