Cabe--Great article.  I have spent hour upon hour measuring dimensions from actual part configurations to produce drawings.  Early in my career, I was a team member given the task of reproducing drawings after a fire that destroyed much of the data base for many of the products manufactured by our company.   Back in those days everything was "paper", no CAD, etc etc.  We, of course, did have copies but many of those were unreliable for various reasons.  This project took the better part of six months and was a painstaking process.  I will say one thing, as a "rookie" engineer, I certainly did get the feel for the products we were manufacturing and that greatly aided my efforts in understanding design processes and reasons for certain features.   We certainly could have used the software from Rapidform 3D at that time.
