Sample text

In contrast, the symbols found in mechanical drawings are complex and variable groupings of graphical primitives that do not fall so easily to the pattern recognition techniques that have been successful elsewhere. CAD descriptions are normally expressed in terms of larger constructs and most CAD/CAM applications assume this higher level of representation. , must therefore be identified. Text recognition may also be incorporated at this point; if individual characters and/or words are not recognised, text should at the very least be separated from graphics during this process.

The comparison and grouping together of vectors needed to identify these relationships is usually left to the entity extraction process. One question remains: exactly what parts of the line drawing image do vectors describe? Each line on a drawing will appear in the raster image as an elongated region of dark pixels. Although the length of these regions is usually much greater, they are regions and do have a finite width; ten or so pixels is not unusual. Vector representations, however, often describe mathematically ideal lines, which have zero width.

4). Striping is similar in some respects to the image partitioning method outlined above. The important difference is that in the former technique the image is divided into a fixed set of regions while in the latter the position and width of the stripe may be varied under the control of the interpretation system. The major advantage of this approach is that only the comparatively small image stripe is stored in the computer's memory at any given time; machines with quite severely restricted memory resources may therefore process images of any size.
