Hybrid CAD Modeling Theory and Method in Reverse Engineering
RE is the generic name of a series of technical methods that convert physical parts into engineering concepts and CAD model. It has been an important branch of modern design methodology. With the development of computer and graphic design, RE has already no longer met the simple imitation products, but product innovation based on physical parts. In order to redesign the CAD model constructed by RE method and then support product innovation, hybrid CAD modeling method and some related key techniques are studied in this paper. Combining conventional design and RE, Hybrid CAD modeling method extracts features, constraints, and design intent from measured data for parametric redesign and eventually completes CAD model.
