Abstract
In the traditional product design method, the design method simply based on the knowledge and experience has hindered the efficiency of the product design, and it brings inconvenience to predict the tendency of the product shape. To solve this problem, a shape generation method is proposed, based on averaging algorithm and spline interpolation. A sampling method for product model based on 2D section is put forward, the coordinates of the sampling points of the 3D model are extracted through setting up the 2D sections. The classification of the 3D model in the semantic level is determined. After the shape extraction, the G2 organic spline curve is generated based on shape averaging method and spline interpolation, thus providing basis for the new shape generation. The shape fusion of the designing mouse is taken as an example to prove the feasibility and validity of this approach. It turned out that the approach proposed in the paper can generate organic surface, which can effectively preserve the source shape. This method proves to be useful for predicting the development trend of product shape or extracting feature templates from a set of related shapes.
