Reverse Engineering

AMD has decades of experience reverse engineering parts and assemblies.  Reverse engineering is needed when you have a physical part, but no CAD model or drawings of it.  AMD can turn your physical part into a 3D CAD model, from which an  engineering drawing can be made.  Have an old machine with a broken part that needs replacing?  Are you manufacturing parts without an engineering drawing?  Do you have an idea how to alter a physical part to improve it's function?  Let AMD convert your physical part(s) to leverage all the advantages of the digital world.

2D to 3D conversion

AMD can take your legacy 2D drawings and convert them into 3D parts with linked engineering drawings.  Check out the 3D modeling tab above to see all the advantages of using 3D CAD files vs. 2D.  This conversion to 3D is especially helpful when improving or revising your product.

Cloud based files

AMD can maintain secure cloud-based folders containing only the latest revisions of your drawings and files.  You can allow your purchasing department access to this cloud folder to ensure that only the latest (and correct) version of the drawing is ordered.  Cloud-based drawings have greatly improved the product life cycle of one of our largest customers.  This allows AMD to function as your in-house engineering team, without actually being in-house.

Checking

Some companies prefer to have their designs or drawings checked prior to building.  Engineering checking reviews part and assembly drawings for proper part numbering, materials, heat treats, and over/under dimensioning just to name a few.  Tolerance stack-up studies can ensure proper assembly and function.  AMD staff have years of experience in the discipline of engineering drawing checking; Michael was employed solely as an engineering checker for RFS in Phoenix circa 2005.
