|Title:||Volume Estimation of Molded Artifacts by B-Splines|
|Published:||October 09, 2009|
|Abstract:||The volumes of two industrially molded non-metallic artifacts were estimated using surface data obtained by a coordinate measuring machine. A tensor product of B-splines was used to model the probed data points on the surface and the Divergence Theorem was used to estimate the volumes. The volume results and volume uncertainties for several cases are discussed.|
