- This paper discusses an approach to automating CAD model acquisition by creating binary space partitioning (BSP) trees from laser range data. Distinct views of the object, each represented by a BSP tree, are then merged using set operations. BSP trees have proven their utility in 3D modeling, graphics and image processing, and their tree structure allows efficient algorithms to be developed that are compact and numerically robust. These properties are of primary importance when considering an intermediate representation between raw sensor data and existing CAD models.
