In some cases a specific product is not provided with appropriate documentation for its production, but exists in physical form. In order to re-manufacture the product, the product must be re-modeled, so it must be measured. If the product has a complex form, the product must be measured with a device that allows 3D freeform surfaces measurement, as it cannot be used with conventional methods. The measurement – point cloud must then be processed accordingly with a software tool that enables the reverse engineering of the model to obtain a volume model of the product that is suitable for the re-manufacture of the product. This is also presented in the thesis.
The case of the product shows the process of reconstructing the model for mechanical products. The product is measured using a structured light based measuring device. Then the measurement is properly processed in the Geomagic Design X software and converted into a volume model. The measurement and the reconstructed model are also properly compared to each other by assessing the error that occurred during the reconstruction of the model. The comparison is properly evaluated and shown in graphic mode, where the deviations of the measurement and the reconstructed model are clearly visible.
