Distinguishing among different kinds of features as well as noises on 3D mesh models is crucial for feature-preserving mesh denoising. This paper proposes to address this issue via in-depth analysis of the intermediate products of the denoising processes, and one framework is presented for raising adaptive and feature-preserving mesh denoising schemes. Firstly, by analyzing the changes of the facet normals during the denoising process, we propose the definition of developmental guidance, which

Then, by incorporating the guidance, we put forward one interpolation-based denoising scheme, which affords an efficient way to interpolate and recover different levels of features and is robust to severe noises. Besides, we also introduce the guidance to the optimization-based model, and the achieved global scheme is tested to be stable and robust to irregular samplings. Both the theoretical analysis and extensive experimental results on synthetic and real-world noises have demonstrated the attractive advantages of our whole framework, such as being adaptive, efficient, robust, feature-preserving, etc. INDEX TERMS Bilateral filtering, feature-preserving, guided filter, linear interpolation, mesh denoising.
