Growing use of massive scan data in various engineering applications has necessitated research on point-set surfaces. A point-set surface is a continuous surface defined directly with a set of discrete points. This paper presents a new approach that extends our earlier work on slicing point-set surfaces into planar contours for rapid prototyping usage. This extended approach can decompose a point-set surface into slices with guaranteed topology. Such topological guarantee stems from the use of… CONTINUE READING
