This work shows a method to recover the shape of the surface via randomized algorithms when the null-screen test is used, instead of the integration process that is commonly performed. This, because the majority of the errors are added during the reconstruction of the surface (or the integration process). This kind of large surfaces are widely used in the aerospace sector and industry in general, and a big problem exists when these surfaces have to be tested. The null-screen method is a low-cost test, and a complete surface analysis can be done by using this method. In this paper, we show the simulations done for the analysis of fast conic surfaces, where it was proved that the quality and shape of a surface under study can be recovered with a percentage error < 2.
