09 Reverse Engineering
Mace Aviation excels at reverse engineering parts or products that already exist but are lacking complete engineering definition. Whether the part is a small fairing or a complete aircraft, we can reverse engineer it. Depending on the level of accuracy required, tools that range from scales and micrometers to a laser interferometer can be used to extract geometry. Extracted geometry is imported into CATIA and resurfaced. 3D CAD models of the reverse engineered part can then be used to modify the existing design or be used to generate new tools for part build.
