Reverse engineering plays vital role in the branch of the mechanical design and manufacturing based industry. This technique has been widely recognized as an important technique in the product design cycle. In regular computerized manufacturing environment, the operation order usually starts from the product design and ends with machine operation to convert raw material into final product. It is often essential to reproduce a CAD model of existing part using any digitization techniques, when original drawings or documentation are not available and used for analysis and modifications are required to construct a improved product design. In reverse engineering approach the important steps involved, are characterizations of geometric models and related surface representations, segmentation and surface fitting of simple and free-form shapes, and creating accurate CAD models.
Some of the chess pieces are broken and lost. The chess pieces cannot buy only one piece to replace the lost or broken chess pieces. Due to that, it is very difficult to get one piece of chess from shop since we have to buy one of the chess set.
Rapid prototyping technique has been chosen to produce the new chess pieces. We decided to design our own CAD model of those chess piece based on the real model of the parts. But, the dimensions will be scaled to smaller measurements. We had come out this idea because we found out that many users...
