We present an algorithm to fair a given planar curve by a log-aesthetic curve (LAC). We show how a general LAC segment can be uniquely characterized by seven parameters and present a method of parametric approximation based on this fact. This work aims to provide tools to be used in reverse engineering for computer-aided geometric design. Finally, we show an example of usage by applying this algorithm to the data points obtained from 3D scanning a model-car roof.
