engineering is the process of capturing the geometry of existing
physical objects and then using the data obtained as a foundation
for designing something new. The new design can be a duplicate
of the original or an entirely new adaptation.
are a number of methods to acquire the data, however, the
existing part should dictate which technology is used. Neco's
knowledge and experience combined with its extensive 3D hardware
and software base assures customers that the right technology
will be paired to the project.
common problem facing industrial designers is how to get organinc
shapes into CAD systems. For example, a design concept may
begin with a physical model of an ergonomically designed object;
the client has approved the design and now its time to develop
a CAD model in ProEngineer, SolidWorks, or other downstream
common problem is how to get an existing object in to a CAD
system. Sometimes a part is no longer manufactured and and
no CAD files exist.
Neco we have solutions to these problems. We have a variety
of scanning systems that can be used to digitize your part.
Next we have a variety of CAD software we use to develop files
that can imported into any downstream software application.
an object has been converted to three dimensional data, it
can be used in many ways: It can be scaled up or down and
milled on a CNC milling machine or used for a variety of rapid
prototyping processes.. It can be sent to many different scholars
for simultaneous study. It can be used for biomechanical study
and animation. It can allow analysis of volume, surface area
and cross section.
