This edited collection of essays from world-leading academic and industrial authors yields insight into all aspects of reverse engineering: The methods of reverse engineering analysis are covered, with special emphasis on the investigation of surface and internal structures. Frequently-used hardware and software are assessed and advice given on the most suitable choice of system. Rapid prototyping is introduced and its relationship with successful reverse engineering is discussed. Importantly, legal matters surrounding reverse engineering are addressed as are other barriers to the adoption of these techniques. Applications of reverse engineering in automotive; aerospace; and medical engineering are reported in depth. Reverse Engineering is a 'must have' title for anyone working with advanced modern manufacturing technologies, either with a view to researching and improving them further or to making their company leaner and more agile in a competitive manufacturing marketplace.Consider two men one of whom is wearing a blindfold. ... It unintentionally implies that CMMs and touch probes are less accurate than computer vision methods, but the analogy ... the main advantages of computer vision systems for CARE, but in practice, their disadvantages hinder their practical use over CMMs. ... Among these questions are how to improve accuracy. ... Ultra- high-accuracy CMMs work in the 1a2 micron range, and more moderate (in terms of cost) CMMs in the 10a 20anbsp;...
