Coordinate Measurement Machine (CMM) or Copy Machine is Commonly  used in mold design measurement. This approach is usually called reverse engineering which derives the approximate original design by measuring the part which is already made. This technique is often used in aircraft or auto motive industries. By directly getting point coordinates from the part or  model, the design can be recovered and more accurate machining can be made.
