A New Approach to Reconstructing 3D Solid from the Two 2D Views Based on AutoCAD
This paper presents a new approach to reconstructing 3D solid model from the two given 2D orthographic views based on AutoCAD, which is much more effective and high efficient for a special kind of compound object than the currently existing ways. The approach emphasizes integrated operating of AutoCAD software and basic knowledge of engineering drawing with no needs for complicated computation and 3D rich imagination and reconstruction. Using this approach, the 3D solid model can be reconstructed effectively and efficiently from the two given 2D orthographic views by several steps of simple operation on computer on the basis of judgment. The research work provides a theoretical possibility for the automatic reconstruction of 3D Solid model of such compound objects, and a simple and practical 3D solid model-reconstructing method for engineers and learners of engineering drawing.
