Abstract

We propose a novel intelligent approach into 2D to 3D of on-line sketching in conceptual design. A Multilayer Perceptron neural network is employed to construct 3D freeform surfaces from 2D freehand curves. Planar curves were used to represent the boundary strokes of a freeform surface patch and varied iteratively to produce a training set. Sampled curves were used to train and test the network. The results obtained demonstrate that the network successfully leaned the inverse-projection map and correctly inferred respective surfaces from curves previously unencountered.
