UN ROLLING - CONE DATA

Postby NOVAMECH » Fri Jan 06, 2017 4:01 am

Can someone please, suggest how I might go about UN ROLLING a CONE

My project is to un-roll a cone at the bottom of a 18 meter tall Cyclone Device. I have tried Cloud Compare and Phil Nixon's - UNFURL app. with no luck.
I need to un-roll this and produce a report showing total area numerically above and below spec. I can do this with ease within PolyWorks once I have the CONE Developed out on to a flat plane.

Cloud Compare - CC Forum informs me that the CONE development does not work correctly at present.

UnFURLed Data from Phil Nixion's app - perhaps I have the orientation incorrect?

Not sure what is the date of the forum message you refer to ;). Anyway if there's a bug we can always fix it :D

How far are you from what you expect?

Maybe consider modeling the conical tank in 3D, and then fitting the pointcloud to it, and generating the 3D PDF deviation analysis report in Geomagic Qualify/Control/Verify (Whatever they're calling it these days).

The report will give you exactly what you're asking for without having to unfurl the surface or pointcloud for planar analysis.

I may be able to send you a sample report, I did some academic statistic analysis work with it a couple years back.

Hi Guys - Just to be clear I'm looking to - apply a 'conical' projection.
As per this image below.
Any help would be greatly appreciated - Thanks in advance

I don't understand why you're not applying the solution provided in image.
Anyhow, a working solution for the programmers (if you don't want to use open source solution or commercial solution)
1-write your own solution for 'conical projection'
or
2- cut your object in 10-20 cm multiple pieces and apply cylindrical projection , you can again use open source solution for that and combine these pieces.
