Where to Start In Reverse Engineering a Curved Beam?

Question asked by Wayne Watkins on Jan 7, 2013

We're looking to get a number of similar parts manufactured as soon as possible. We have some old drawings, but they're mostly undimensioned so our vendor is looking for models.  No one here has experience with reverse engineering like this and we're not sure of the best approach to take.

 

 

We're using Verisurf and a Faro arm, but we're not sure if we should be trying to scan the entire part or perhaps a surface at a time, or how they should be handled in SolidWorks 2013, because so far all I've gotten are really ugly meshes that seem to be of limited use.

 

 

Any suggestions or guidance would be appreciated.
