The Study on the Linking-Up of Free-Form Surface Fiber Placement Track Based on Mesh Creating
When using meshing creating method of FP (fiber placement) track, once the track point falls at some vertex point of mesh element, in the meantime the vertex point happens to be shared by several mesh elements, there needs a reasonable calculation method to select next mesh element which the FP track will pass through. Then it comes to the problem on linking of FP tracks. In order to solve it, in this paper, the author puts forward a new method, in which parallel projection theory is used, project need analytical mesh element and FP reference vector to a sound projective plane, on which the mesh element be selected and the FP track be calculated, then the FP track would be projected back to the placement surface. Program using this method realized a reasonable joint at the shared vertex point of meshing elements, which the FP direction has little change, and the mutation of track doesn’t come forth. So, the correctness of the method, which putted forward in this paper, is proved.
