ABSTRACT This paper introduces and illustrates the results of a new method for offsetting triangular mesh by moving all vertices along the multiple normal vectors of a vertex. The multiple normal vectors of a vertex are set the same as the normal vectors of the faces surrounding the vertex, while the two vectors with the smallest difference are joined repeatedly until the difference is smaller than allowance. Offsetting with the multiple normal vectors of a vertex does not create a gap or overlap at the smooth edges, thereby making the mesh size uniform and the computation time short. In addition, this offsetting method is accurate at the sharp edges because the vertices are moved to the normal directions of faces and joined by the blend surface. The method is also useful for rapid prototyping and tool path generation if the triangular mesh is tessellated part of the solid models with curved surfaces and sharp edges. The suggested method and previous methods are implemented on a PC using C++ and illustrated using an OpenGL library. Keywords: Offset, Triangular mesh, Multiple normal vectors

1. INTRODUCTION Offsets are widely used in tool path generation for numerical control machining, rapid prototyping, hollow or shelled model generation, and access space representations in robotics. In a numerical control machining area, 2D and 3D offsets are particularly important and useful for gouge-free and collision-free tool paths [1,2]. In 2D milling, a contour is offset by the size of the cutter radius, and invalid loops are removed for a gouge-free tool path [1]. In 3D milling, a gouge can be removed by computing the cutter...

...Distribution is skewed-right with mean = 10 minutes and standard error = 0.8 minutes. b) Distribution is skewed-right with mean = 10 minutes and standard error = 8 minutes. c) Distribution is approximately normal with mean = 10 minutes and standard error = 0.8 minutes. d) Distribution is approximately normal with mean = 10 minutes and standard error = 8 minutes. ANSWER: c 2. Suppose the ages of students in Statistics 101 follow a skewed-right distribution with a...

...material used to introduce the gene, usually a plasmid or bacteriophage, is called the vector. Ideal vectors have high rates of replication. Gene cloning is an important procedure in genetic engineering that allows us to produce a large amount of a useful gene product: for instance, insulin can be made for diabetic individuals by cloning genes from pancreatic cells.(Wikipedia 15/11/2014)

There are many ways that I have been illiterate in my life. One way that I think has had the biggest impact in my life was not having the “normal” family that most kids seem to have growing up. I never had the family where the mom bakes all the time and takes her kids to soccer practice and drives a mini van, while the dad doesn’t come home until later at night just to help his kids with their homework and tells them goodnight while him and his wife talk about their day apart....

...and the seats are sold. This ticketing philosophy is transparent to consumers. There is a “value for money” offering, which is easily understood by consumers. By offering only one price in the market, the consumer is confident that “shopping around” using other channels or making greater ticketing restrictions will not reap the reward of lower fares. As the airline educates their consumers that the cheapest fares are sold first, consumers checking prices are more likely to...
