A Cutting Algorithm Based on the Tin Stratigraphic Model


Article Preview

This paper researched the cutting algorithm on the basis of the stratigraphic Tin model. Different from the traditional grid cutting method which was a single plane cut, the paper designed a polygon prisms cutting method for simulating geological boundary and mining boundary by the interactive analysis of the stratum model. This method improved on partitioning the triangle nets and reconstructing the stratum, which was able to realize cutting stratigraphic with the arbitrary polygonal prisms. Finally, the test result showed the cut graphics by the method of polygon prisms cutting stratum model in OpenGL 3d graphics library.
