Reverse Engineering is the process of creating a 3D surface of volume model using an actual object (contrary to design and modeling which start with a CAD file and continue to the object’s manufacturing).



  • It is performed using a cloud of points previously obtained through a 3D scan.
  • This phase aims to transform the cloud of points into a file which can be accessed by Computer-aided design (CAD) software.
  • Several methods are proposed, and support will be provided to enable a rational and optimized solution.
