With the adoption of 3D scanning, the furniture designer still develops the physical prototype of a furniture piece. But, to reverse-engineer the piece, the prototype is 3D scanned, and the raw point data is then used to create contours using a CAD package, in particular to accurately model every nuance in curvatures and radii. The result is a final model that has been minimally altered to remove the prototype’s defects.
