CyberTape: an interactive measurement tool on polyhedral surface

Charlie C.L. Wang
2004 Computers & graphics  
This novel interactive tool allows users to perform measurement tasks in an intuitive and natural way in virtual space. Our implementation algorithm can be completed in real time on a standard PC.  ...  This paper presents an approach to measure the curve distance between two points on a polyhedral surface in the manner that simulates dragging a tapeline at the two points.  ...  Conclusion and Discussion This paper presents an interactive virtual measurement tool -CyberTape on a polyhedral surface in the manner that dragging a tapeline between two location points, which is intuitive  ...
