Study on 2D Simulation Algorithm and Implementation for Loop Pile Tufted Carpet
To preview of the final appearance of tufted carpet, this paper devises a solution to simulate the color appearance of tufted carpet. The simulation adopts color blocks to represent a single loop pile in carpet surface, through resizing color block size to simulate the extrusion between loop piles. The solution starts from traversing the control pattern to get the pile height level information. Base on the current and surrounded loop piles height level to infer the size and start point of color block for current loop pile. According to patterns’ information to generate the color appearance simulation for loop pile tufted carpet. Base on the proposed simulation, devise the frame work and control logic for simulation software, and developed the simulation software with C++. Simulation test is carried out, the result shows the method can effectively generate carpet color appearance simulation for tufted carpet comprising of multicolor yarns.
