There are some steps that have to be completed in order to be able to use the reverse engineering technique and one of them is the scanning of the pieces. This is made in order to get the necessary information regarding the dimensions and shape of the pieces. It also serves in obtaining the virtual model of the pieces or objects in a faster and easier way. At first we get them in the form of a cloud of dots or NURBS (non uniform rational B-splines) which, with the help of a software, are processed into B-splines curves or B-splines surfaces. This software uses an entire library of mathematical formula.

Keywords: scanner, RE, cloud of the point, CNC, manufacturing
