Copy milling based on 3D measurement data

Copy milling based on 3D measurement data

The opportunity

3D scanning of tools with ATOS can also be useful without reverse engineering the surfaces into a CAD model. This is because certain tool shapes permit a new tool to be milled directly on the basis of ATOS measurement data (STL data).


The profit

This can be useful, for example, when broken tools need to be replaced. In addition, mirrored tools for the right or left variant of a part can also be milled very easily based on this data, without having to go through the try-out process again.

The benefits

Direct milling
on STL data without surface reconstruction
Fast reproduction
of tools in case of tool breakage
Easy production
of mirrored tools
