International Journal of Computer Applications in Technology (IJCAT), Vol. 32, No. 1, 2008

Abstract: Reverse Engineering (RE) is a research field where physical models are digitised to be reconstructed, surface by surface, feature by feature, as a CAD model. This paper deals with features known by their mathematical equation, obtained when a touch probe based digitisation is used. The paper presents an interactive approach for RE of mechanical part. It introduces a CAD model reconstruction methodology based on new STEP AP203 ED2 standard integrating parameterised features that enables the parameterisation of the rebuilt features. This is needed for a complete integration of the new CAD model in a collaborative product development approach.
