|Darkhangeomach LLC manufactures mining, heavy industry equipment and produce tools and spare parts of heavy machinery equipment – Their team was looking for a device that could assist them in creating 3D models of complex surfaces for reverse engineering of their mining equipment.|
Darkhangeomach are also taking steps towards sustainable growth and efficient investment in the technical capacities of the company, they recently acquired the EinScan HX hybrid light 3D scanner.
They compared 3D scanners and CMM machines and found the EinScan HX an efficient, reliable and cost-efficient companion. Also, the EinScan HX was able to meet the rigid requirements of their industrial working procedures while being easy to handle. Due to the bundle with Solid Edge SHINING 3D Edition and Geomagic Essentials, Darkhangeomach can benefit from the full design and engineering capacities from one hand.
STEP 1 – 3D scanning with the EinScan HX
The impeller of the mining equipment has a shiny metal consistency and is thus hard to capture with structured light scanning technology. The laser module of the EinScan HX is ideal to acquire this type of object in 3D. After applying the reference points, one can directly get started with the data acquisition.
Step 2 – Data preparation in Geomagic Essentials
Geomagic Essentials is the ideal solution for scan-to print and downstream Reverse Engineering applications as it extracts all the necessary elements of a scanned part for immediate use in CAD software programs. Many currently available CAD software programs have limited capabilities in regards to processing scan data. Geomagic Essentials facilitates this process, making the scan data compatible with native CAD workflows. With the new bundle, the power of Geomagic scan-to-design solutions is now accessible to designers desiring to integrate 3D scan data and part design. The following steps can be carried out easily when importing the scan data from EXScan software to Geomagic Essentials: deleting redundant data, repairing mesh, filling holes, aligning to the world. Furthermore, references can be generated like curves on the data surface, to facilitate reverse operations or auto surface, generating surfaces that match the object exactly as it is constructed.
STEP 3 – Processing in Solid Edge SHINING 3D Edition
The final model for further processing in dedicated CAD software or for direct manufacturing can be prepared in Solid Edge SHINING 3D Edition by creating curves and surfaces, constructing the shapes and remaining parts.
“After the introduction of the 3D scanner, our work on modeling complex parts has been simplified by 2 times and accuracy of complex surface machining is increased.”- Erdenee Batbayar, CEO Darkhangeomach LLC
