In reverse engineering one often needs to generate geometrical models of old mechanical parts. Manual redrafting of old products using computer aided design (CAD) software is a laborious procedure. To overcome this problem, an automated procedure is proposed. The proposed approach is based on using clustering to segment the range image of the object and then constructing a solid model using an automated procedure. To demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed method, the model generation for convex planar faceted objects is considered. A generalized version of the adaptive fuzzy c-elliptotype clustering algorithm suitable for higher dimensional data is used to identify the planar facets in noisy range images when the number of facets is unknown
