Abstract

Communicating the knowledge and science of product engineering, analysis and manufacturing planning is an area of continued research driven by the digital economy. Virtual Reality (VR) is a generally accepted interactive digital platform which industry and academia have used to model engineering workspaces. Interactive services that generate a sense of immersion, particularly the sense of touch to communicate shape modelling and manipulation, is increasingly being used in applications that range from Design For Manufacturing and Assembly (DFMA) and Process Planning (PP) to medical applications such as surgical planning and training. In simulation, the natural way for solid modelling is the use of primitive geometries, and combinations of them where complex shapes are required, to create, modify or manipulate models. However, this natural way makes use of Booleans operands that require large computational times which make them inappropriate for real time VR applications. This work presents an insight on new methods for haptic shape modelling focused on Boolean operands on a polygon mesh. This is not meant as a contrast to point/meshediting methods, instead it is focused on idealising polygonal mesh modelling and manipulation for use with haptics. The resulting models retain a high level of geometric detail for visualisation, modelling, manipulation and haptic rendering.
