Reverse Engineering for Industrial-Plant CAD Models
TMCE, Tools and Methods for Competitive Engineering, 2008
Abstract: Industrial-plant CAD models are commonly represented by triangular meshes, which do not preserve original information about implicit surfaces used during design. The reverse-engineering algorithms presented in this paper focus on reconstructing implicit information, recovering original data. We propose two different approaches, a numerical one and an original topological approach. We explore speci- ficities found in CAD meshes to achieve high effectiveness, reconstructing 90 percent of information from massive models (with millions of triangles) after few minutes of processing.
