Is know as the act of dismantling an object to see how it works.
First at all to analyze and get knwoledge about his composition and funtionality with the objective of duplicate, modify or enhanced the device.
This practice was commonly from older industries, they used to test every input/output logic signal in the processors on electronic devices that have their own print circuit board.
Over time this technic have been used on differents branches of egineering, mainly in the mechanical design area, in which we can front facing whit a lot of difficulties cause the diversity and wide numerousnees of designs or part aplications.
The technological advances allow the development of new sophisticated devices as in the case of 3D Scanner, which let us analyze complex parts or complicated designs, we can look over part by part and edit the digital model as many as posible.
