This paper addresses the issue of thermal modeling of
vehicle components where the 3D models of the
components are not traditional CAD models derived from
engineering drawings but are models derived from 3D-
imaging scans of existing real-world objects. A "reverse
engineering" pipeline is presented that uses 3D scanners
to capture the geometry of an existing object from
different views and then integrates these multiple views
into a single 3D surface mesh description of the object.
This process requires no a priori CAD drawings of the
object and thus enables modeling in situations where the
original manufacturer no longer exists or soldiers have
