Video 2: Modern manufacturing ~ Reverse Engineering
After hand fabricating a transmission tunnel for the 1923 T-bucket, it was reverse engineered to produce one with an improved shape and to be able to mass produce small quantities.
The model was scanned using a handheld scanner reading 26,000 points per second. The point cloud was used to develop a CAD solid model to be used as the math model for CNC machining the styrofoam pattern. The machined pattern was used to layup the fiberglass mold.
