Abstract: Image based manufacturing technique is a novel manufacturing method, which is combine of machining technique and machine vision technique. By using the technique, machine tools can perform cutting process according to what they see, which is very like that the machine tool is equipped with "eyes". In this paper, some researches of author about the subject are proposed, and key techniques are included. Construction of image based manufacturing system is introduced briefly. The geometrical model is then built from the image information, in which process shape from shading with adaptive pro-processing method is used. After the model is built, cutting path is planed, and two cutting paths, line cutting and contour cutting, are conducted. NC programs are generated automatically, and machining process is then performed. Finally a prototype system named ImageCAM is introduced. Algorithms developed in our research are verified in the system.


Keywords: Image processing, Bitmap, Line cutting method, Contour cutting method, Layer cutting method, Shape from shading (SFS).
