Reverse Engineering

Reverse EngineeringBuilding a CAD model from point cloud data.


Generating a CAD model from an existing physical artifact is one of the most mathematically challenging tasks in the business. 


Reverse engineering typically involves any number of these steps:  

•  Point cloud manipulation (filtering, smoothing, decimation, etc.)

•  Mesh generation and optimization

•  Mesh healing and repair

•  Generation of parametric model from mesh

Capvidia’s algorithms for reverse engineering have been used as components in popular software packages for many years. And now, with the introduction of ReverseVidia, this technology is available for the end user in a single, easy-to-use software application.
