Reverse engineering represents a method to retrieve information from an existing product, information which are then used for designing a new product or to reproduce it in order to make spare parts. In this paper is presented a case study on making a spare part of complex shape from a worn part. There are presented the stages of acquisition of data by scanning, the use of reverse engineering for the realization of the 3D model, the virtual manufacturing and then the machining of the workpiece CNC machine tools.
