Mesh Decomposition Using Skeleton and Fuzzy Clustering

Zhijing Wu and Shuangjiu Xiao

Abstract—As 3D models are used more and more in various applications, model decomposition acts as an important step for model understanding and can be used as a pre-processing step for different applications. This paper presents a mesh decomposition method based on skeleton. In recent years, a lot of work has been done to decompose polygon meshes to sub-meshes. No standard for the result, but the aim is to get reasonable sub-meshes and keep the boundaries between them fine. In this paper, we propose a mesh decomposition algorithm using skeleton and fuzzy clustering. Our method uses the skeleton of the mesh as the base to automatically get the meaningful components without over-segmentation and keeps a fine boundary using fuzzy clustering.

Index Terms—Mesh decomposition, skeleton extraction, fuzzy clustering.
