CREAMI (Center of
Reverse Engineering and Additive Manufacturing Innovation) Lab at
the Department of Industrial Engineering of the University of Naples
Federico II was realized on November 2007.
The main activities of CREAMI Lab are: acquisition and 3D
reconstruction of real objects, even of complex shape, through two
non-contact Reverse Engineering (RE) systems, an active system, the
laser scanner Konica Minolta VI- 9i and a passive system, the
digital photogrammetry. The software used for the laser scans are
Geomagic Studio and Polygon Editing Tool, while for the
photogrammetric image processing Rhinophoto, Photomodeler and
123Catch software are used. Furthermore a tool developed in MATLAB
by the Researchers of the CREAMI Lab, allows the 3D models
reconstruction starting from .dicom data of Computed Tomography (CT)
Furthermore in CREAMI Lab new innovative solutions for Additive
Manufacturing systems are studied, through three low-cost 3D
printers: Prusa-Mendel I3, Ultimaker e CubeX Trio by 3D Systems.
Several degree and doctoral thesis, research and consultancy
projects were carried out using these facilities.
The main CREAMI Lab activities were carried out in the following
fields: Automotive, Aeronautic, Naval and Biomedical (especially in
the field of dentistry) field.
