Room: Belle Meade
Creating free-form surfaces is a challenging task even with advanced geometric modeling systems. Optical scanners offer a promising alternative to model acquisition---the 3D scanning of existing parts or clay maquettes. In the context of Computer-Aided Geometric Design, reverse engineering refers to the problem of converting the dense point sets produced by scanners into useful geometric models. One of the main applications of reverse engineering is to allow existing manufactured parts to be incorporated or modified into new designs. The speakers, from academia and industry, will present new developments in this field.
