Tolerance-based Point Classification Algorithm for a Polygonal Region
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 7, issue 2, 2002, Pages 75~80
This paper details a robust and efficient algorithm for point classification with respect to a polygon in 2D real number domain. The concept of tolerance makes this algorithm robust and consistent. It enables to define‘on-boundary’ , which can be interpreted as either‘in-’or‘out-’side region, and to manage rounding errors in floating point computation. Also the tolerance is used as a measure of reliability of point classifications. The proposed algorithm is based on a ray-intersection technique known as the most efficient, in which intersections between a ray originating from a given test point and the boundary of a region are counted. An odd number of intersections indicates that the point is inside region. For practical examples the algorithm is most efficient because most edges of the polygon region are processed by simple bit operations.
Mantissa Chunking Algorithm for the Compression and Progressive Transmission of 3D Mesh Models
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 7, issue 2, 2002, Pages 81~88
Transmission of 3D shape model through Internet has become one of the hottest issues in these days. Presented in this paper is a new approach for the rapid transmission of the geometry data of the shape model. By analyzing the important three factors, the shape fidelity, the file size, and the decompression time, for the compression, we point out the potential problems of previous approaches of using the deltas between consecutive vertices and propose an alternative of directly using the position values of vertices of the model. It turns out that the proposed approach has smaller file size, has lesser distortion in the model, and the decompression is faster.
Merge of VRML Mesh for 3D Shape Data Compression and Transmission
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 7, issue 2, 2002, Pages 89~95
VRML data, which is mainly structural element, is frequently used for modeling and visualizing 3D objects. Although there can be variations, it is a usual practice to represent 3D shapes in VRML format. Ever since the advent of Internet, there have been strong needs to transfer shape data through Internet. Because of this need, it is necessary to transform a data file in VRML or similar format into a more convenient form to transfer through the network. In a VRML file, a model is sometimes divided into a set of triangle meshes due to several practical reasons. However, this causes various demerits for the fast transmission. Therefore, it is more efficient to merge the mesh sets into one mesh set for the transmission. In this paper, we present the problems in the merge process and the techniques to handle the situation.
Material Characterization of RP Process - Fused Deposition Modeling
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 7, issue 2, 2002, Pages 96~101
Rapid Prototyping (RP) technology has been advanced to fabricate initial prototypes from various materials. Stratasys′ Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is one of the typical RP processes that provide functional prototypes of ABS plastic. In order to predict the behavior of final ABS parts, it is critical to understand the material properties of the raw FDM process material, and the effect that FDM build parameters have on the FDM part. In this paper, we seek to characterize the properties of ABS parts fabricated by the FDM 1650. Using the Design of Experiment (DOE) approach, the process parameters of FDM, such as raster orientation, air gap, bead width, color, and model temperature were examined. Tensile strengths of crisscross specimens, 〔45°/-45°〕, cross specimens, 〔0°/90°〕, and directionally fabricated tensile specimens (〔0°〕 and 〔90°〕) were measured and compared with the injection molded FDM-ABS P400 material. For the FDM parts made with a -0.003"air gap, the typical tensile strength ranged between 50 percent and 83 percent of the strength of injection molded ABS P400. From the experiments, a couple of build rules for designing FDM parts were obtained.

Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 7, issue 2, 2002, Pages 102~109
This paper presents a method for automatic generating of check sheet to measure deep-drawn sheet metal. By using polyhedral model of CAD, the proposed procedure calculates measuring points automatically. The results of measure are exported to MS-Excel. The proposed method is implemented by API functions and C language using SPEED plus CAD/CAM system and MS-Window OLE.
A Study on the Web-based Integrated Environment for Design Systems
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 7, issue 2, 2002, Pages 110~120
This paper presents the method that allows easy and rapid integration of legacy resources within the company and between departments. The proposed system can easily construct a distributed environment for collaborative design between departments in the companies. It supports knowledge-based integration system, which allows designers to develop product with deep knowledge about product design. For the purpose, DOME (Distributed Object-based Modeling Environment)-which has been developed through various studies-was used in this paper. To overcome its problems and insufficiency, the Web-Integrator is proposed. The Web-Integrator is very suitable for an Internet environment because it uses HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol) and XML (extensible Markup Language) as its main communication method. By supporting the remote object access via URL (Uniform Resource Locator), the implementation of the integrated system makes the Web-Integrator systematic and intuitive. All the functions and resources provided by DOME could be used with the interface that enables bi-directional communication with the DOME system. Web-Integrator provides full web-based environments for the general designers, who do not have a full design knowledge and experience, and the proposed system allows design operations to happen at any place and anytime. Also it provides XML-RPC(Remote Procedure Call) based web service framework, which allows other systems to use easily the service that the DOME system supplies regardless the location and the platform.
Multi-resolutional Representation of B-rep Model Using Feature Conversion
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 7, issue 2, 2002, Pages 121~130
The concept of Level Of Detail (LOD) was introduced and has been used to enhance display performance and to carry out certain engineering analysis effectively. We would like to use an adequate complexity level for each geometric model depending on specific engineering needs and purposes. Solid modeling systems are widely used in industry, and are applied to advanced applications such as virtual assembly. In addition, as the demand to share these engineering tasks through networks is emerging, the problem of building a solid model of an appropriate resolution to a given application becomes a matter of great necessity. However, current researches are mostly focused on triangular mesh models and various operators to reduce the number of triangles. So we are working on the multi-resolution of the solid model itself, rather than that of the triangular mesh model. In this paper, we propose multi-resolution representation of B-rep model by reordering and converting design features into an enclosing volume and subtractive features.
Grouping Algorithm for Custom-tailored Products
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 7, issue 2, 2002, Pages 131~139
Custom-tailored products always vary their sizes and shapes to satisfy the customers' tastes and requirements but they have to be fabricated as fast as possible when ordered. One way to solve this problem is to prepare several representative products in advance and each custom-tailored product is generated by machining the closest representative product. To realize this approach, it would be necessary to be able to group the products into several groups each of which has a representative product. Once the similar products are identified to be grouped, the representative shape can be generated such that all the products in the group can be made by machining the representative product. The custom-tailored products considered in this work have similar shapes but different sizes. Since these products have free surfaces, that are hard to be compared, their convex hulls are used for the grouping. Among all the products to be grouped, one product is chosen as a base shape. The shape and overall similarity values between the base shape and the remaining shapes are calculated as their convex hulls are rotated virtually. By calculating these similarity values at each rotation, the optimal alignment of the reference shape with respect to the base shape is determined. Overall similarity value at this optimal alignment is used as a measure for grouping. A prototype system based on the proposed methodology has been implemented and used to group the shoe-lasts for custom-tailored shoes.
