Supporting Ecurie Bertelli with reverse engineering has been a fantastic challenge taking us back to the roots of modern engineering. Ecurie Bertelli are the World’s foremost specialist in pre-war Aston Martins, ensuring they continue to be enjoyed on road and track.

Supporting Ecurie Bertelli



We use our 3D scanners and CAD systems to reverse engineer components in the most sympathetic way possible. Retaining the original design intent and classic aesthetic where ever possible. On occasion we are able to suggest subtle modification that improve performance in a measured way.

Where possible we design parts to be produced using exactly the same techniques they were originally produced by. One of the first projects we worked on for them was a 1-1/2" carburettor which is fitted to 1930's cars. This part was scanned, 3D modelled, sand cast and post machined to produce replacement stock. We also trialled a number of number of different production techniques on this part. 3D printing patterns in wax for investment casting and designing files which can be printed in sand for direct casting. Both of these option reduce the costs associated with low volume iterative prototyping.

BDI Precision has exactly the right digital tools for the job, and we really know how to use them. We support are clients with all aspects of the design process. From tackling the most awkward CAD geometry to supporting the development of colour and trim. In the case of Ecurie Bertelli, we worked closely with their team to engineer concept models into production ready parts by offering a complete design for manufacture service.

  • Concept sketch development. 

  • Initial Photoshop renders

  • Rough concept CAD model creation. 

  • High resolution rendered images. 

  • Development of engineered designs.

  • Production quality CAD model creation. 

  • Hand calculation to validate designs.

  • Finite element analysis to test structures.

  • Computational fluid dynamics. 

  • Drafting technical drawings for manufacture. 

  • In house prototyping. 

  • Production supplier management.

  • Inspection.

  • Build and cycle testing.

Our technology solutions with save you time and money.

  • Our services is price more competitively than any other 3D scanning service in the south east. 

  • We have a reactive team on standby and can turn your job around on the same day if needed.

  • All of our 3D scanning services are quoted as fixed price jobs.

  • Our team have developed techniques for 3D scanning delicate and complex objects over the last decade. 

  • Customer satisfaction is a must at BDI Precision. If you are not satisfied we will keep working until you are. 

  • Our equipment is fully portable so we can scan objects at location, alternatively you are always welcome at our offices. 

  • We will provide you data in a useable sealed mesh format: .STL .OBJ .STEP .IGES or .X_T. 

  • We can create NURBS models of any scan data to ensure the scan is easy for you to pick up and work with. 

  • Our design team can make changes to your mesh data or start engineering parts directly if required. 

  • if you already have scan data that needs cleaning up we are happy to take a look at that as well.
