REVERSE ENGINEERING OF COMPLEX SHAPED PARTS
Modern automated design of complex shaped parts using CAD/CAM/CAE software faces
the task of creating a virtual 3D-model of an existing physical object, without reference to the
source documentary producer. This work is dedicated to the practical application of reversible
designing of technology elements used in extreme downhill biking. Significant load leads to
destruction of some parts of the equipment, but replacement of a unit is economically
disadvantageous. Simulation of the idler lower pulley wheel of rear derailleur and creation of
attachment to the protective helmet are described in the paper.
The aim of the present research is practical application of the knowledge, obtained in the
classroom with computer 3D-design of complex shaped parts, using a modern technology of
reverse engineering (modeling) by means of PowerSHAPE 2015 (Delcam Ltd, UK) and
Autodesk Fusion 360 (USA) software.
The work will be presented to the international student competition Delcam 2016 and
was awarded the second prize of the International 3D Modeling Competition 2016 at Pavel
Sukhoi State Technical University of Gomel, Belarus.
