Digitized 3D mesh segmentation based on curvature analysis

S. Gauthier, W. Puech, R. Bénière, G. Subsol


Today, it is increasingly frequent and easy to digitize the surface of real 3D objects. However, the obtained meshes are often inaccurate and noisy. In this paper, we present a method to segment a digitized 3D surface from a real object by analyzing its curvature. Experimental results - applied on real digitized 3D meshes - show the efficiency of our proposed analysis, particularly in a reverse engineering process.
