Reverse engineering, 3D scanning, Stamping, Drawpiece


The paper presents a methodology developed by the author for reconstructing surfaces of shaping punches and die blocks. It involves the use of specialised tools available
in a commercial CAD system. These are the tools that are used to adjust selected surfaces of the geometricmodel of a part to the cloud of points representing the surface of the part, which may be obtained from a scan. The usefulness of these tools is examined usinga punch used in the automotive industry as an example.
