Reverse Engineering

Reverse Engineering is the process of measuring a part or object and then creating a CAD model of the part/object that reflects how it was to be designed originally (Design Intent).


A Hybrid model is a polygonal model that uses rapid surfacing and traditional solid modeling techniques. Used when basic geometric features merge with complex contours.

A Solid model is a CAD model that is defined by the volume of an object, not by its surfaces.

A Surface model is a CAD model of an object that is defined by its bounding surfaces.
