Paper Abstract

Rapid and high precision data acquisition methodology from coordinate components with free-form surface and geometrical model can be implemented widely. Typical application covers part localization, automatic calibration and reverse engineering. Integrated structured light vision sensor with Cmm (Coordinate Measurement Machine) enhances the high- precision coordinate measurement capability. In this paper a curvature-based adaptive sampling approach and the evaluating index for the sampling precision are presented. The matching and subdividing algorithm for generating matrix-type mesh data from sample points is described. The methodology to register and merge the measured data from multiple viewpoints to model the free-form surface is also presented. Based on the given initial coordinate rotation matrix R and transformation vector T, the different viewpoints can be translated into a unique frame of reference. By introducing special coordinate of 3D space, the registered data is divided into mesh, which cover the whole surface of object. An application example for shoe modeling is described to illustrate the advantages.
