Projecting 3D models into two-dimensional image repre
sentations is very easy, but reconstructing 3D models out of
multiple two-dimensional projections/images is more so
phisticated. We will present an automatic system that uti
lizes technical drawings of marine ships to reconstruct a 3D
model of the ship. The system is designed as a universal
process that can handle multiple images of different kinds
or other projections in a generic fashion, but with the need
of additional user input. Nevertheless using only technical
drawings from predeﬁned rectangular views overcome the
need of user interaction and lead to a rough 3D model that
can be used in other applications.
