3D CAD rendering Turner wheel

“Turner” wheel and drum

As part of another project reverse engineering the body of another beautiful old car, we were required to 3D scan and reverse engineer a very rare Turner wheel and drum. Being of an unusual design, using a Bugatti Type 35 style wheel with integral drum, this was an interesting project all of itself. The idea was that the drum section could remain the same and the rim area be changed for different tyre sizes. Our work

Westland Whirlwind reverse engineering project

We are pleased to be playing a small part in the re-creation of this superb World War II twin-engined fighter bomber. Essentially our role is 3D scanning two models that were used by Westland for aerodynamic testing. The subsequent data has been post-processed so the CAD crew the project team already has on board can create the body surface in conjunction with the plans that already exist. We wish the Whirlwind Fight

Two wheeled Land Speed Record attempt

The key part of this project was knowing the right people. Having been approached to help this UK attempt on the two wheeled land speed record in 2014, it was apparent that the project would have overwhelmed our resources. However we knew a team that might be able to help and after a meeting, the Motorsport Department of the University of Derby agreed to assist. The project is on track to go to Bonneville in 2014 and

Aston Martin mystery prototype 3D scanned, reverse engineered and restored

We offered to 3D scan a solid plaster Aston Martin prototype that had been kept at the Aston Martin Owners Club – AMOC – ¬†for many years. However it became apparent that it was in very poor condition and therefore we had it restored and are returning it to AMOC in perfect condition. As an aside, apparently this model was rescued from a skip! Also on restoration it was apparent that it had suffered a ̶
