Reverse Engineering with Rovopoint POP3 - Ispanico97

Scanning and Reverse Engineering of a Sterile Battery Shell for Surgical Motors.

Today, I bring you a practical application in the professional use of Revopoint 3D scanners.
Using the brand-new POP3, I scanned a battery shell for surgical instruments in order to reconstruct the model in Fusion360. With several broken shells available, I made cuts in the damaged parts to divide the object and facilitate the scanning process.
Since the pieces were black, they were first painted white and then scanned in 9 different sessions.
The scans were performed with automatic exposure and a rotation speed of 300s. The point clouds were subsequently fused in standard mode at 0.1mm and then merged together. For the fusion, I preferred to use the manual marker system. After completing the “stitching” phase (which took quite a long time this time), the mesh was created at level 6 and subsequently reduced for easier handling in Fusion360.
You will notice that the resulting file is more “grainy” and therefore less visually appealing, as my main focus in this case was dimensional accuracy rather than the beauty of the model.
The model was later “straightened” in PrusaSlicer, which I find very convenient for this operation, and imported into Fusion360.
Once imported, I was able to proceed with the Reverse Engineering operations based on the scanned data. The model came out perfect, and after a final check, I conducted a resin printing test to practically assess the quality of the result.
What can I say? This scanner is perfectly suited for this type of work without any hitches or complications. I hope you find this showcase enjoyable.

Very nice. Your reverse engineering workflow looks very similar to mine. I tend to convert to a solid in Geomagic before taking in to Fusion though. It loses a lot of detail but it’s easier to work with than the mesh.

thanks for sharing, great scans, great reverse engineering! what kind of white paint did you use?

Great showcase !
