Geometric & haptic modelling of textile artifacts

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • Geometric modelling and haptic rendering of textiles is an area of

    research in which interest has significantly increased over the last decade. A

    haptic representation is created by adding the physical properties of an object to

    its geometric configuration. While research has been conducted into geometric

    modelling of fabrics, current systems require textile data to be manually entered

    into the computer simulation by a technician. This study explores the possibility

    of automatic generation of geometric and haptic models of real world textile

    samples. The development of a scalable and generic methodology for geometric

    and haptic modelling of plain weave textiles made from wool yarn is reported.

    This system has been successfully implemented using a step-wise procedure.

    Initially, an image of the textile artefact is captured. Then the critical features of

    the image are extracted from the image and deployed in a finite element model.

    The geometric model is augmented by adding physical properties of the textile

    and developing the haptic model. Two different haptic rendering procedures are

    implemented based on Reachin Application Programming Interface 3.2 (API).

    The developed methodologies are described and results obtained are provided.

    Keywords. Geometric model, haptic rendering, finite element model, textile

    artefact, weave style
