3D Rebuilding for Impeller of Centrifugal Pump Based on ICT
In order to rebuild 3D models for pump impeller, the total inner complex construction data must be obtained at first. With the help of ICT, 367 ICT images with high quality of two typical impellers of centrifugal Pump were collected respectively, and format conversion from RAW to BMP was fulfilled though a developed program. Volume rendering was fulfilled based on these fault images, VC++ 6.0, MFC, ADO, VTK, and a series of digital image processing. A program named ReImpeller3D was developed on reverse engineering for pump impeller. The software is object-oriented and has several input and output interfaces, and also can supply geometrical models for numerical simulation, FEM, RP, digitized production, and redesign to production either. The practical application shows that it is feasible to use volume rendering to rebuild 3D model for pump impeller.
