Two scanner scanning by 3D Engineers

As if one scanner wasn’t enough, here’s dedication to scanning duty, with each of our own scanners on its own mission to record the data we needed in a short (the only) timescale of subject availability and with more than one purpose in mind – all achieved, with clever multi-tasking and efficiency, in less than a day. Hard work, but fun, and shows it’s possible.

Pre WWII Mercedes plan to be created in CAD

Creating parts like these is easiest from a CAD file, so one of the things we’re happy to do is to take 2d plans and create the 3E part ready for machining. Parts are then accurate to the plans, but if wanted, can be modified to suit. If you think how many parts there are in even a simple car, then working – as one has to – like this on some of them just goes to show why restoration takes time and m

Okrasa Special section body buck

Okrasa Special buck design

October 2014 – the buck fits like a glove! After years of working the long way round towards his goal, 3D Engineers helps the owner achieve it: scanning of the existing chassis and then a buck designed in the required shape to fit it perfectly. The buck was then manufactured and delivered, assembled and left ready for action by 3D Engineers. The picture shows the virtual fit of the buck on the scanned chassis.
