A procedure for reconstructing solid models of conventional engineering objects from a multiple-view, 3D point cloud is described. (Conventional means bounded by simple analytical surfaces, swept surfaces and blends.) Emphasis is put on producing accurate and topologically consistent boundary representation models, ready to be used in computer aided design and manufacture. The basic phases of our approach to reverse engineering are summarised, and related computational difficulties are analysed… CONTINUE READING
