Exact Metrology and Cincinnati-based Greenery 33 recently partnered on a marketing campaign that demonstrates how reverse engineering can be used with a variety of materials.
Greenery 33 produces unique plant holders and pots, and donates 33% of their earnings to environmental protection agencies.
For the campaign, Exact Metrology reverse engineered a digital copy of a human skull using Geomagic DesignX software and NURBS.
According to a release on the project: “Geomagic Design X combines history-based CAD with 3D scan data processing, enabling users to create feature-based, editable solid models compatible with existing CAD software. NURBS, or Non-Uniform Rational B-spline is used to represent curves and surfaces. Next, surface analysis is performed with Geomagic Design X for parametric modeling. Afterwards, NURBS is inspected with a color map against the scanned data of Geomagic. Lastly, .stl files rendered in Keyshot 3D of the skull are placed in product shots for Greenery 33.”
The entire project took just two days.
