3D Reconstruction from Orthographic Image and Optimization Processing of NC Machining for Reconstructed Part
For inverse constructing object from its orthographic image, a new method of 3D reconstruction based on image vectorization and bi-arc approximation of cubic B-spline is investigated. A 3D CAD model is automatically acquired from 2D views by means of 2D primitive recognition, 3D reconstruction of primitive and combination of 3D primitive bodies. With the help of CimatronE8.0 software, reasonable procedure design and optimization toolpath planning are applied to increase machining accuracy and productivity during automatic programming for reconstructed 3D solid. Reconstructed parts are machined on the VMC-600 type machine center with FANUC system. The results of application indicate that this method has many advantages, such as quickly obtaining the CAD model of part, getting smooth machined surface, efficient machining without invalid or reduplicate feed and so on. As a result, it can be applied widely in NC machining field.
