Extracting features from point sets is becoming increasingly important for purposes like model classification, matching, and exploration. We introduce a technique for segmenting a point-sampled surface into distinct features without explicit construction of a mesh or other surface representation. Our approach achieves computational efficiency through a three-phase segmentation process. The first phase of the process uses a topo-logical approach to define features and coarsens the input… CONTINUE READING
