Reverse Engineering - The Highlights

From the resulting point clouds, ZEISS Reverse Engineering generates surface descriptions which can then be processed in the CAD system. As a result, complex surfaces can be described in their entirety with small data quantities. Standard geometries are not only described as an approximation, but also through exact geometric elements. In addition to the precise description of the model, the algorithms smooth the surfaces to an extent that the transitions are as tangentially constant and curvature-constant as possible – a must for optimal milling paths.
