Paper Abstract

In the paper the sequential steps of reverse engineering based on the data gathered by full-field optical system are discussed. The compete conversion process of a cloud of point coordinates to CAD/CAM is presented. The triangulation algorithm, which automatically creates the triangle mesh from the input cloud of points is described. Each block of this algorithm is explained din details with special attention paid to the parameters controlling the quality of the data conversion process. The adaptive process of reducing the number of the triangles on the base of second derivative of local curvature of objects' surface is explained. The error analysis is discussed at each step of the cloud data processing in dependency of the algorithm initial parameters.
