Model Building for Reverse Engineering

In order for our system to be used for reverse engineering as well as inspection, it must be capable of building an initial model of a part. We have achieved this functionality by building on top of the algorithms described in the previous section. Additionally, rather than building a model which represents only geometry, we have created a method that produces a feature-based representation.
