Methodologies for planning motion trajectory of parametric interpolation such as non-uniform rational B-spline (NURBS) curves have been proposed in the past. However, most of the algorithms were developed based on the constraints of feedrate, acceleration/deceleration (acc/dec), jerk, and chord errors. The errors caused by servo dynamics were rarely(More)
This paper presents a Delaunay-based region-growing (DBRG) surface reconstruction algorithm that holds the advantages of both Delaunay-based and region-growing approaches. The proposed DBRG algorithm takes a set of unorganized sample points from the boundary surface of a three-dimensional object and produces an orientable manifold triangulated model with a(More)
In the framework of Virtual CMM [1], virtual parts are proposed to be constructed as triangulated surface models. This paper presents a novel surface reconstruction method to the creation of virtual parts. It is based on the idea of identification and sculpting of concave regions of a Delaunay triangulation of the sample data. The proposed algorithm is(More)
This paper proposes a full tooth reconstruction method by integrating 3D scanner data and computed tomography (CT) image sets. In traditional dental treatment, plaster models are used to record patient׳s oral information and assist dentists for diagnoses. However, plaster models only save surface information, and are therefore unable to provide further(More)
