Application of Reverse Engineering to Product Development
This 3D optical metrology has become a standard tool in industrial process chains by providing fast and precise full-field 3D data for quality control, rapid manufacturing and reverse engineering applications. In this report, the trend that 3D optical metrology has widely used by the product development is described. Concretely, it is described to inspect shape on the free-form surface, to digitize the design model, to manufacture solid shape without CAD model, to define CAE model from real shape, to make analysis for sheet metal components, and to make real-time strain measurement for tensile tests.
