The key modules in a typical reverse engineering system consist of the acquisition, registration, and the integration of range images of three-dimensional objects with complex geometry. We first present a self-made optical digitizer that is employed for quickly acquiring range data from multiple views, then introduce a visualized registration procedure that can provide a reliable estimate for the fine registration of multiple range images in a unified coordinate system. Experiment results are given to show the effectiveness of this approach in 3-D imaging and multiple range image registration for the applications of reverse engineering.
