Reverse engineering has always been an important activity in design. Despite the significant role it plays in design, its integration into modern digital development processes has been lacking. A large amount of friction in digital workflow undermines the effectiveness of reverse engineering activities. However, new technology is promising to eliminate the digital friction associated with reverse engineering.
