DDI Presents "Reverse Engineering and Aging Aircraft" at RAPID 2008

3D SCANNING: Reverse Engineering, Analysis & Inspection
Disney's Coronado Springs Resort and Conv Ctr
Lake Buena Vista FL USA
May 20 - May 22, 2008

Wednesday, May 21
9:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.

Reverse Engineering and Aging Aircraft
Staying abreast of current projects and the process that define these projects helps both current and new users see the evolution of the technologies.

With incredible investments in both capital and infrastructure, the aerospace industry has a vested interest in keeping its assets flying without an undue burden on current and future development efforts. To economically reach this goal Reverse Engineering has proven it can meet the high standards of the aerospace industry. In particular, older parts and planes benefit from this approach as there is no current 3D or computer data to guide re-engineering efforts.

This process will be described via several cast studies that highlight when and how to use particular hardware, the challenges of assembling and creating a relevant model, and downstream options.
