I have a need to reconstruct a solid from a cloud of points.
I only found small indication of that in the help:"
Open CASCADE can also provide a service known as Surfaces from Scattered Points (SSP). This allows to construct surfaces from scattered points. This algorithm accepts or constructs an initial B-Spline surface and looks for a its deformation (finite elements method) which would satisfy the constraints. Using optimized computation methods, this algorithm is able to construct a surface from more than 500 000 points."
Can anyone point to additional information other than that?
I've looked into the B-Spline material but it seems that this is only part of the algorithm and the FEM part is missing.
I found more in the web: http://www.opencascade.com/products/occ/overview/compocc7/ssp/
, but this is also general.
Where is the real stuff?
Examples would be most welcome.
