A review on the recent development in heterogeneous object modeling is provided in this paper. General problems and prevalent solutions to the modeling of heterogeneous objects are investigated. Vigorous heterogeneous object representations are roughly classified into three major categories: evaluated models, unevaluated models and composite models. We(More)
A hierarchical representation for heterogeneous object modeling is presented in this paper. To model a heterogeneous object, Boundary representation is used for geometry representation, and a novel Heterogeneous Feature Tree (HFT) structure is proposed to represent the material distributions. HFT structure hierarchically organizes the material variation(More)
This paper presents a new approach to model complex heterogeneous objects with simultaneous geometry intricacies as well as complex material distributions. Different from most of the existing approaches, which utilize manifold B-Rep and the assembly representations, the proposed scheme takes advantage of the non-manifold cellular representations to model(More)
Computer-aided design of porous structures is a challenging task because of the high degree of irregularity and intricacy associated with the geometries. Most of the existing design approaches either target designing artifacts with regular-shaped pores or reconstructing geometric models from existing porous objects. For regular porous structures, it is(More)
Voice based human–computer interactions have raised much interest and found various applications. Some extant voice based interactions only support voice commands with fixed vocabularies or preset expressions. This paper is motivated to investigate an approach to implement a flexible voice-enabled CAD system, where users are no longer constrained by(More)
Voice-enabled applications have caught considerable research interest in recent years. It is generally believed that voice based interactions can improve the working efficiencies and the overall productivities. Quantitative evaluations on the performance boost by using such Human-Computer interactions (HCI) are therefore necessary to justify the claimed(More)
