In reengineering technical components, the robust automation of reverse engineering (RE) could overcome the need for human supervision in the surface reconstruction process. Therefore, an enhanced computer-based geometric reasoning to derive tolerable surface deviations for reconstructing optimal surface models would promote a deeper geometric understanding of RE downstream processes. This approach integrates advanced surface information into a deep learning-based recognition framework by explicitly labeling geometric outliers and subsurface boundaries. For this purpose, a synthetic dataset is created that morphs nominal surface models to resemble the macroscopic surface pattern of physical components. For the detection of regular geometry primitives, a 3D-CNN is used to analyze the voxelized components based on signed distance field data. This explicit labeling approach enables surface fitting to derive suitable shape features that fulfill the underlying surface constraints.
