Abstract
Remote laser scanning of complex 3-D geometry can generate data sets with large numbers of points. This paper describes how these data are read into a CAD/CAM database (Unigraphics). A program is written in Graphics Interactive Programming Language (a subset Unigraphics) that edits the data files, generates points, spline curve and surface entities in Unigraphics and stores the created models and parts in the databases. Programs for data sampling and editing are also shown separately.
