One can think of reverse engineering as a specific CAD modeling process where you start from an existing artifact instead of a blank workspace. The whole process is driven by a reference shape represented with either a point cloud or mesh geometry. Looking from this standpoint, Analysis Situs is designed to become a modeling system where the main prerequisite is the existence of a reference part guiding the design process and used to snap points, curves, and surfaces.
