Method for using a computer graphics system for changing the shape of the surface of models of geometric solids with the aid of deformation and device for implementing same


The proposed method for using a computer graphics system for changing the shape of models of geometric solids with the aid of deformation is characterized in that it is used for producing geometric solids which mate with one another as they were relative to one another and have mating surfaces, which require manufacture with precision accuracy (up to 10 micrometres), for example toothed screws (cylindrical, conical) of a screw compressor unit, gear trains, gears of a gear pump and similar mating pairs of geometric solids. The proposed method consists in that deformation of a model (3) of a semifinished product (3) of a first mating solid (1) is performed with the aid of a model (7) of a first tool (7), whose surface is automatically calculated using several mathematical laws, each of which is a polynomial in which at least one of the coefficients represents one of several characteristics defining the geometry of the shape of the surface of the second geometric solid (2).
