Simple steps to CAD
Generate your CAD model with ZEISS Reverse Engineering
From 3D scan to CAD model with ZEISS Reverse Engineering
Looking for a software solution that makes reverse engineering much easier? ZEISS Reverse Engineering is ready to take your data to the next level. Scan your parts in GOM Inspect or any other software and import your STL, PLY and ASCII-Formats to ZEISS Reverse Engineering. It just takes a few well guided steps to achieve a high-precision CAD model that can be exported to standard CAD formats like IGES, STEP or SAT. So whatever your reverse engineering task: get there fast and easily.
A powerful software for reverse engineering
A guided workflow
ZEISS Reverse Engineering makes it easy to generate a CAD model from scan data such as polygon meshes or point clouds and guides you step by step through the workflow.
ZEISS Reverse Engineering delivers corrected CAD surfaces with the highest accuracy. This is essential, if you want to produce plastic parts that have very high accuracy requirements.
Prepare your data with features like hole filling and flattening, proceed with features like dynamic best fit or extrusion.

Scan to CAD for geometrical part
Follow Josh’s instructions to scanning a geometrical part and transforming it into a CAD model using ZEISS Reverse Engineering and the GOM Scan 1. First, he scans a symmetrical part and cuts it in half. Then, he creates basic elements of the part with planes from the mesh. Next, he creates a body from these elements and add details. Finally, he mirrors the part – and has a perfect CAD model of the part.
Reverse Engineering for geometric forms? Export your mesh to ZEISS Reverse Engineering and start to create, combine, extract and adjust. While doing that, you are in control of the whole process and generate exactly the result you need.
ZEISS Reverse Engineering offers you various functionalities to achieve the highest accuracy for freeform surfaces. To convert your mesh, use “Surface Approximation to Points” by example. Afterwards, the software guides you step by step until you create your mold.
Scan to CAD for freeform part
Discover how Josh uses the software ZEISS Reverse Engineering to create a mold for a freeform shaped part. First, he creates a freeform surface of an already scanned part. Then, he creates a solid cube around the part. Finally, he subtracts the freeform surface from the cube to create the final mold.
Scan to CAD for organic shaped part
Watch Josh as he turns the scan of a highly detailed, organic shaped miniature figurine into a CAD model using the software ZEISS Reverse Engineering. FIrst, he cleans up the mesh, closes holes and removes unwanted features. Then he simply exports the mesh to ZEISS Reverse Engineering. The result: a perfect CAD model, that follows the natural shape of the part.
If you want to create a CAD model for a part with an organic shape or if you like to continue reverse engineering, designing and modeling with a CAD – it will take you just a few clicks to get there. Have a look at the video.
