Paper Abstract

The key modules in a typical reverse engineering system consist of the acquisition, registration, and the integration of three-dimensional range surface data. We present a self-made optical digitizer that is used for quick acquisition of range images from multiple views, and describe a visualized registration scheme that can reliably provide an initial estimate for the fine registration of multiple range images in a unified coordinate system. We also present an efficient approach for merging multiple range images in order to build a complete geometric model of the objects in 3-D space and experiment results showing the effectiveness of this approach in 3-D imaging and modeling for the application of reverse engineering
