    I don't think a book on reverse engineering has hit the market yet.
There are many papers in the scientific world where you will find
information as well as specific technologies used in surface fitting etc. I
am not sure which book you have purchased ... my opinion is that NURBS or
Geom. Modeling books can be too theoretical (I am not under estimating the
intelligence of any one here). What we really need is a practical guide type
of book. Actually, I am interested in finding out if such a book is in
preparation anywhere. I will mail you a copy of our paper as a primer that
appeared couple of years ago... titled

"Reverse Engineering Trimmed NURB Surfaces From Laser Scanned Data"

Happy reading

  Could anyone suggest a paper or book that would give us a good idea of
  proceedures or techniques to taking point cloud data and surfaces to
  parametric designs. We presently have purchased a geometric modeling book,
  but would like to know better how to get a model from a point cloud to
  editable information. This may sound not to clear, but it still may be a
  in rear to go backwards from point cloud data. Presently we are looking at
  software to get the nurbs or polygon data., but how can we improve our
  efforts in the cad world.
  thanks for the comments and past help to all
