This paper presents a new technique for detecting sharp features on point-sampled geometry. Sharp features of different nature and possessing angles varying from obtuse to acute can be identified without any user interaction. The algorithm works directly on the point cloud, no surface reconstruction is needed. Given an unstructured point cloud, our method first computes a Gauss map clustering on local neighborhoods in order to discard all points which are unlikely to belong to a sharp feature… CONTINUE READING
