Fast Mesh Segmentation for CAD Models
In this paper, we present a fast method for segmentation of triangular meshes into simple patches. The method is suitable for commonly used CAD models. Given a mesh surface, all faces of it cluster to a user-specified number of patches according to similarity of curvatures. Experimental results show that our algorithm is very efficient and effective.
