51 Sobh, Tarek M.; Henderson, Thomas C.A dynamic framwork for intelligent inspectionCAD Computer Aided Design typically involves the design manufacture and inspection of a me chanical part. The problem of reverse engineering is to take an existing mechanical part as the point of departure and to inspect or produce a design and perhaps a manufacturing process for the part. ...CAD; Manufacture; Inspection; Intelligent inspection1992
52 Sobh, Tarek M.; Henderson, Thomas C.A dynamic recursive structure for intelligent explorationWe suggest a new approach for inspection and reverse engineering applications.
