The key to an effective solution is to source replacement parts quickly, even if the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) is no longer able to offer support. Creating precision designs
The quality of these parts is determined by several aspects of the process. Capturing all the necessary data for a 3D computer aided design (CAD) drawing can be achieved using laser scanners and digital coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) that can measure items quickly and very accurately.
In the past, creating the physical component would have involved making a mould and casting a blank...
