Abstract

3D exploded views have been widely used for assembly instructions in many fields but have seldom been used in archaeology. For studying stone tools, relics are repeatedly assembled using indistinct traditional illustrations. We apply this powerful presentation technique on the stone tool models, and study algorithms for point cloud data. In addition to presenting principles for the restoration of stone tools, we designed our system based on archaeological rules. In this paper, we propose an interactive visualization method of assembly instruction using 3D visualization technology to assist in the efficient restoration of stone tools.
