Reverse Engineering Laboratory


The Reverse Engineering laboratory consists of two 3D scanners, the first based on laser technology, for non-contact measurements, the second based on piezoelectric technology, for contact measurement. Scanners, combined with 3D software (scanner or open source owners) for the points cloud and surface editing are applied to Reverse Engineering processes in the industrial and biomedical fields.

Research activities

The main research activities carried out in this laboratory are:

  • Virtual Prototyping
  • Biomedical product design

Optical projection system for laser projection KONIKA MINOLTA RANGE 7
The Konica Minolta Range 7 is a specialized 3D digitizer device for scanning industrial parts, machined parts, prototypes, dies, cast parts, press parts, injection molded parts and much more. The generated 3D data can be reproduced in a computer and then compared with other 3D models. The non-contact scanner can digitize the external profiles of various types of parts.
