Local topological beautification of reverse engineered models

Article English OPEN
Gao, C. H.; Langbein, Frank Curd; Marshall, Andrew David; Martin, Ralph Robert;

Boundary representation models reconstructed from 3D range data suffer from various inaccuracies caused by noise in the data and by numerical errors in the model building software. The quality of such models can be improved in a beautification step, where geometric regu... View more
