Paper Abstract

It is necessary to smooth the point cloud data in reverse engineering or freeform surface inspection. The smoothing method based on the heat diffusion has a good effect to the point cloud with noise points, but how to choose a proper penalty function to smooth the point cloud is no answer. The paper proposes a method to decide the penalty function based on the fuzzy mathematics' relevant function concept. The four special functions, such as rectangular distribution, drop hemi- distribution, drop hemi-normal distribution and drop hemi-Cauchy distribution, have been analyzed. Each penalty function has been used to smooth the point cloud by experiment, the result show that drop hemi-Cauchy function and drop hemi-normal function are fit to be the penalty function. The conclusion is gotten that the variant has a no-linear relationship with the result of penalty function. Some cases are used to validate the characteristics of penalty function. There is a new way to handle the point cloud during the preprocessing of reverse engineering or complex surface inspection.
