The reproduction of parts for which drawings or CAD files are not available has always caused engineering effort to be expended in a non-routine manner. The need for such a reverse engineering technique has been highlighted by the technical media over the last year. Commercially advertised systems have certain drawbacks. A system developed by university personnel in Toledo, Ohio provides insight on the difficulties of the problem and the means to solving this need for part reproduction.
