Interactive Sketch-Based Digital Prototyping by Using the Level-Set Method
This paper presents the development of a sketch-based interactive digital prototyping method by using the level-set method as the underlying technology. Various deformative operations (e.g., warping, smoothing) are developed by the level-set method to design 2D sketches. Fast and robust numerical techniques are utilized to support the real-time performance of level-set operations. B-spline function-based shape transformation method is developed to construct 3D volumetric data from multiple 2D sketches. Virtual prototypes are then visualized by reconstructing surface models from the volumetric data. Computational cost and memory requirement of the presented method are analyzed to evaluate its real-time performance. Example virtual prototypes are shown to demonstrate the capability of the developed method.
