Case Study

Sustainable Redesign 

See how Petrus reverse engineered oral health products bringing design to life

About the Client

The client is a world-renowned company at the forefront of cutting-edge technology and innovation approached us for a reverse engineering challenge. They are leaders in  their  field,  developing  reliable  and  effective  tools  for  diagnostic  imaging, image-guided therapy, patient monitoring, health informatics, and consumer health and home care.

Problem Statement

The client approached Petrus with the task of redesigning oral healthcare products by reverse engineering and then planning the design and manufacturing process. 


  • We conduct a teardown analysis of the functional requirements,
  • Superimposed parametric and scanned models to compare features based on surface area,
  • Adhered to a multi-level quality checking process (CMM Inspection & Geomagic comparison report) so that your product’s drawings are free of any errors.
  • We created a project brief by using advanced methods for key steps, such as 3D scanning, STL to Parasolid conversion, parametric modeling and drafting, assembly verification, and a CMM and Geomagic comparison report


    • In collaboration with the client, we first analyzed the existing oral healthcare products; then,  we  designed  new  models  that  are  more  effective  and  cost-efficient  to manufacture.
    • We looked at surface parameters  like  surface  mismatch,  surface  finish,  and  metrology  (D2),  contour matching, and contour matching and optimization of milling tools and parts.
