This paper proposes an error-based segmentation approach for direct rapid prototyping (RP) of random cloud data. The objective is to fully integrate reverse engineering and RP for rapid product development. By constructing an intermediate point-based curve model (IPCM), a layer-based RP model is directly generated from the cloud data and served as the input to the RP machine for fabrication. In this process, neither a surface model nor an STL file is generated. This is accomplished via three… CONTINUE READING
