Hexagon's REcreate provides a single working environment from scan to manufacturable CAD model. Click image to enlargeHexagon’s Recreate is a powerful and flexible software solution designed ‘from the ground up’ to make it easier and faster to reverse engineer parts from metrology scan to manufacturable model.

Despite highly capable metrology systems, reverse engineering requires complex digital workflows to account for incompatible data types and technologies, which impedes productivity and introduces errors.

Hexagon has brought its metrology and production experts together to build REcreate ‘from the bottom up’ to streamline these workflows so that engineers and operators can routinely achieve a high quality, manufacturing-ready result.

REcreate provides a single working environment from scan to manufacturable CAD model.  The user prepares CAD models and drawings from any point cloud data. Its CAD tool suite enables users to create complete and manufacturable CAD models as well as 2D engineering drawings. REcreate’s analysis tools interrogate those 3D models and validate whether they are manufacturable before exporting as CAD or STL for computer aided manufacturing (CAM) or additive manufacturing processes.

While designed to be interoperable and slot into a customer’s existing processes, the solution offers additional benefits to customers that use other Hexagon technologies in their workflow. Sites that use Hexagon’s portable arms for inspection can reduce training needs by allowing any operator to read inspection data directly from the device to reverse engineer using a single solution. REcreate is also rigorously tested with Hexagon’s production software tools that are used to plan, optimise, and program machining processes.
