Abstract: The essay proposes to realize theoretical and experimental research in the field of three-dimensional scans, as well as in the field of reverse engineering to 3D printing. The idea of the theme has left the engineer responsible for different types of electrical / electronic equipment and has to recreate / rebuild CAD models for a number of parts of the equipment configuration, parts that fail after a certain operating time.
Keywords: reverse engineering, reconstruction, 3D part models, flexible technology systems.
