ABSTRACT
This chapter presents the state of art for the application of generated point cloud/Stereolithugraphy (STL) data in industry. Generated point cloud and (STL) is emerging as a representation format for geometric modelling. STL is the standard data format used in rapid prototype and reverse engineering methodologies using triangular facet with a normal vector pointing away from the surface in the solid. The point cloud data is a dense set of discrete coordinate points and samplings from the surface of a three dimensional scanned object. Point cloud and STL data are scanning based advance file format associated with the contact or non contact scanning device. Generation of point cloud and STL data is used as productive techniques increase the accuracy quality and to control noise of scanned model. The present chapter present a detailed description of process methodology, methods of scanning, applications, advantages and limitations on point cloud and STL. Further, the adaptive wear out area of gear tooth has been determined using reverse engineering approach. Finally, the technique was demonstrated to scan the existing physical object in order to improve the product quality by the applications of CAD/CAM/CAE techniques.
