The Similarity Comparison Algorithm of Free-Form Surfaces with Single Curvature Feature
College of Mechanical and Electronic Engineering, Lanzhou University of Technology, Lanzhou
This paper studies the shape similarity evaluation of free-form surfaces expressed by B-spline with single curvature feature and proposes a similarity evaluation algorithm based on curvature feature. Firstly, we calculate the normal vector direction of the two surfaces compared, and use it as the Z axis, so that the two surfaces are aligned on the Z axis. Then, the two surfaces are cut with planes that all perpendicular to the Z axis, and the intersection sets of two surfaces are obtained respectively. Finally, we design the similarity algorithm of plane curves to realize the similarity comparison of corresponding curves in the two sets of intersection, and which is used as the basis for evaluating the similarity between two surfaces. The algorithm transforms the problem of similarity comparison between 3D surfaces into two dimensional space by plane cutting method, and reduces the complexity of the problem effectively. The algorithm only needs to align one coordinate axis in the process of posture adjustment, so it is easy to implement. In order to test the effect of the algorithm, simulation experiments on different type of single curvature feature B-spline surfaces are carried out. The results show that the proposed similarity comparison algorithm of free-form surfaces is feasible and effective.
