From 3D data to high-precision CAD model with ZEISS Reverse Engineering

Are you looking for a software that makes reverse engineering easy? ZEISS Reverse Engineering takes your 3D scan data to the next level. Simply scan a part in GOM Inspect or any other software, then import the STL, PLY and ASCII-Formats to ZEISS Reverse Engineering. A few guided steps are all it takes to obtain a CAD model that can be exported to standard CAD formats such as IGES, STEP or SAT. No matter what your reverse engineering task: with ZEISS Reverse Engineering you can get there easily and fast.


Guided workflow

ZEISS Reverse Engineering guides you step by step through the workflow, making it easy to create CAD models from scan data such as polygon meshes or point clouds.


High precision

ZEISS Reverse Engineering delivers corrected CAD surfaces with maximum accuracy – a prerequisite if you want to produce plastic parts with high accuracy requirements.


All-inclusive features

Edit your 3D scan data with functions such as hole filling and flattening, then proceed with features such as dynamic best fit or extrusion.

Any shape is possible with ZEISS Reverse Engineering


You want to reverse engineer a geometric shaped part? Simply export your mesh to ZEISS Reverse Engineering, then start to create, combine, extract and adjust. As you’re in control of the entire process you get exactly the result you want.


ZEISS Reverse Engineering offers a range of functions to help you achieve the highest accuracy for freeform surfaces. For instance: To convert your mesh, choose “Surface Approximation to Points” – then the software guides you to your mold.


If you want to generate a CAD model for an organic shaped part – or if you simply wish to continue reverse engineering, designing and modeling with a CAD – a few clicks are all it takes to get you there. Take a look at the video.
