Abstract

Fillets, rounds, chamfers and grooves are secondary features which are typically present in real manufactured mechanical components to satisfy some manufacturing and functional requirements. Despite the broad array of research conducted on feature recognition, the investigation of secondary features is a relatively new topic. All of the pertinent studies have been focusedonly on the recognition of secondary features from B-Rep models. The recognition and segmentation of secondary features from a discrete model is a non-trivial problem due to the same geometric descriptors that may be applied to both primary and secondary features. Moreover, although in real-world mechanical parts primary features are planes, cylinders or cones, the secondary features may be non-analytical and complex-shaped geometries. Further sources of uncertainty are the measurement errors and non-ideal geometries of the real objects to which the method is applied. To overcome these problems, a new and original method to segment secondary features of tessellated geometric models is proposed. The method is based on the analysis of geometric-differential properties and provides specific strategies that reduce its sensitivity to all of the above-mentioned uncertainties without affecting its selectivity. The proposed method, described in detail in this paper, is tested in some very critical cases, and the results are presented and discussed.
