One of the major tools in concept design is the prototype model and one consequence of this is that engineers are faced with the challenge of converting prototype models into CAD models at the appropriate stage in the product development cycle. This paper is concerned with reverse engineering strategies to build valid CAD representations based on prototype models with complex features. The problems associated with the construction of CAD representations from multiple sets of scanned data are also discussed.
