3D PRECISCAN now offers a finite element calculation service!
Thanks to this support, we help our customers with everything related to their needs in terms of innovative R&D development.
In fact, more and more of our customers need to assess whether the designed mechanical structure will withstand the load cases it may have to undergo during
Here is another example that shows you our progress in finite element analysis for one of our clients in Drummondville!
After designing it in SolidWorks, our analysis by calculations made it possible to perform the mechanical verification of this fixed platform with a height of 8 ft with a load of more than 3000 lbs!
It is therefore reassuring
Prevention is better than cure, and that means checking the strength of your structure. Our analysis by calculations made it possible to carry out the mechanical verification of this fixed platform with a height of 8 ft with a load of more than 3000 lbs.
We reverse-engineered a stainless steel half-shell for our customer Best H2O. A beautiful project that our team loved working on!
Best H2O is a solution center for the handling and dewatering of water treatment, as well as the service and optimization of existing industrial equipment.
Unusual little project!
Today, we're telling you about this time when we accompanied a client who wanted to reverse engineer a part himself. The part in question being a large casting, representing a gearbox and its cover, you can imagine that the challenge was considerable!
So we offered him a solution to make it easier for him and guided him
Here is an example of a COMPLETE reverse engineering performance for our good customer GSR construction! The mission: to deliver a brand new shredder shaft, simply from the old part.
We first scanned the shaft, made the 3D and then 2D images, and started manufacturing a brand new part from our plans. The part was even inspected using PolyWorks
Discover the result of a 3D scan and reverse engineering of a casting.
Last fall, 3DPS was given the mandate to reverse engineer a pool skimmer in order to rebuild it from scratch.
Indeed, more than just a retro contract, the customer had asked us to make modifications to the part to simplify its installation. The whole thing was then 3D printed, before being installed in place of the original part. What a
Another unusual project by 3DPS!
This week, we wanted to show you a little before and after of an exciting super project we recently worked on!
VanMode, a young Montreal-based company entering the RV industry, commissioned us to perform a complete scan of the cargo portion of a 2012 Ford Transit Connect.
They then designed the interior in a
Another project under our belt! Recently, MR Industries in Acton Vale contracted us to do the complete reverse engineering of a shaft operating on a cardboard winding machine. It sounds very simple when you say it like that, but it's a very complex part! Indeed, its structure allows air circulation from one end of the machine to the other. It also
Earlier this year, GDL Equipment mandated us to completely reverse engineer a series of gates and gates for the pork industry. A great challenge that presented itself to us, once again! Here you will find an overview of the steps required to carry out such a project: 1. Scan the part, clean the scan and generate the meshing (STL file) 2. Align the
The 3D reconstruction of a... toilet? There are no taboos at 3D PreciScan! But why scan toilets, you may ask?
Surprisingly, we can still innovate and improve the functioning of this object that we use on a daily basis. This is what our client realized and which led him to set up a patent. We can't say more, because it's TOP
Another great achievement for 3D Preciscan! Our client TM Demers mandated us to perform the Scan and reverse engineering of 2 other GE elevator motors, installed in the Intact Tower in Montreal!
Interesting fact! These engines are over 70 years old and are still in very good working order, even after so many years!
Our 3D Scan will
Black Haze Workshop commissioned us to reverse engineer a VW 2.5L 5-cylinder engine named 07K. Our client, who aims to develop performance parts, chose this affordable and very strong engine as a base to work from. In particular, he wants to adapt a turbo, which will require the design of an exhaust manifold. This is where the power of our 3D
Recently, we have been working on a great example of what we can offer as a COMPLETE reverse engineering service: 1. 3D Scan 2. Reconstruction 3. Realization of the 3D. This time, it was a fluted shaft that passed under the sharp eye of our scan, at the request of our client, RIDD. We leave you with these images that illustrate another example of
We were mandated by TM Demers to partially reverse engineer a KONE elevator motor, installed at the CHUM. Our customer had to use our scan to design, manufacture and install the engine guards according to current safety standards. The goal was actually to improve the installation and safety of a product in operation!
We leave you with these
The Institute of Agri-Food Technology commissioned 3D PreciScan to reverse engineer an IQ concrete saw hood, which had partially burned during operation. The mandate? Scan the part to be able to rebuild it using 3D printing, with a new plastic including a flame retardant. We are proud to present you with another example where the transition from a
Here's a project that definitely ranks in the top 3 biggest scans we've had to do! Our client, W.Côté in Mercier, mandated 3D PreciScan to obtain the 3D scan of the front chassis of his HITACHI ZW150. Thanks to the images created by our scan, the customer was able to design the necessary fastener brackets to adapt the equipment to the snow removal
Definitely, this year, we've seen it all! Indeed, we have completed our first 3D scan... on an animal. The MAC Equestrian Centre in Saint-Cyrille-de-Wendover commissioned us to scan the front leg and back of a horse in order to build its custom-made gaiters and saddle. A beautiful challenge, completely different from scanning an inanimate
At the 2019 Salon industriel in Drummondville, two young podologists requested that we scan a foot. At the time, we weren't even sure it was possible to scan a body part.
After a few in-house trials, we saw for ourselves just how incredible technology really is! Our 3D scan produced a highly precise 3D rendering of a foot!
Recently, we received a request from Fives Liné Machines Inc. to inspect the heart of a railway track. What an interesting project!
Having designed and manufactured a machining machine for this type of parts, Fives Liné Machines Inc. asked us to check one of their test parts.
Installation during scanning:
Since launching our business, we have scanned a TON of static and mechanical objects. Scanning human body parts? That, on the other hand, hadn't even crossed our minds! Our first request took place at the Salon de l'industrie in Drummondville, in 2019. Two young podiatrists wanted a foot to be scanned. Believe it or not, from that moment on,
Our customer, Usimétal, benefited from our full reverse engineering service for a gear part of one of its machine tools
