Boundary representation models reverse engineered from 3D range data suffer from various inaccuracies caused by noise in the measured data and the model building software. Beautification aims to improve such models in a post-processing step solely working with the boundary representation model. The improved model should exhibit topological and geometric regularities representing the original, ideal design intent. This paper gives an overview of algorithms for a complete beautification system suitable for improving the topology and the geometry of low to medium complexity reverse engineered models.
