3DWORX (www.3dworx.co.za) is the sub-Saharan distributor for eviXscan 3D scanners manufactured by Evatronix in Poland. A company from South Africa offers services in the field of high-precision 3D scanning, CAD design, reverse engineering, and 3D printing. The case study presents how 3D WORX applied the eviXscan 3D Heavy Duty Optima scanner and the Geomagic Design X software in the development project of an electric motorcycle at Blackstone Tek Hypertek.
What is Blackstone Tek (BST)?
Blackstone Tek (BST) is an innovative company that builds carbon fiber performance products. It is a combination of the business profile and a love for racing which enables them to create exceedingly strong but still lightweight wheels, and fuel tanks, swingarms, fairings and custom-built components for iconic motorcycle and automotive brands.
Design the most innovative electric motorcycle using CAD, but also hand-sculpting some prototype parts is the essence of the work to achieve an original organic aesthetic. The Master designer is Pierre Terblanche, responsible for the following styling motorcycles: Ducati 999, the HyperMotard and the SuperMono.
Using of eviXscan 3D Heavy Duty Optima scanner
The primary tool in the process conducted by 3DWORX was eviXscan 3D Heavy Duty Optima scanner – a professional high-precision 3D scanning device for reverse engineering, contactless quality control and fast prototyping of medium-sized models.
The solution used by 3DWORX is to combine CAD modeling with 3D scanning. The entire motorcycle design can be represented in CAD thanks to the application of eviXscan 3D Heavy Duty Optima scanner, the eviXscan Suite 3D scanning software and the 3D Systems Geomagic Design X software for reverse engineering.
