Reverse Engineering services by API

Reverse Engineering

Whether for global manufacturers or small custom shops, API’s expert staff of measurement specialists and advanced metrology equipment can perform convenient and fast reverse engineering projects. Laser scanning creates data from an existing part or compares captured data to your existing CAD, as well as as-built parts to CAD Services. Laser scanning and reverse engineering services can be done at an API office or on-site at the customer facility.

With access to some of the most advanced equipment, software, and personnel in the industry, API Services offers reverse engineering. If your part is small enough, ship it to us, and we can measure it at our facility. If your part is too large to ship, our equipment is mobile, we will come to you! We have perfected the reverse engineering process to support many workflows and desired deliverables.
