Ø  Main achievements

1. In the area of fundamental algorithms for computer graphics, he and his cooperators have proposed a series of new algorithms on the basic graphics elements generation, clipping, the relation between points and polygons, especially the 2D encoding, vertex encoding and 3D encoding for line clipping have theoretical significance.


2. In the area of computer aided design, he and his cooperators have made a progress on the flexible products which are featured as mixed dimensions, multiple levels and inaccuracy size representation, such as garments, toys, lasts and cartoons. Also he has made contributions on the research for intelligently, parametrically, and automatically sizing machine components.


3. In the area of engineering drawing intelligent understanding, he has proposed the principle of engineering semantic classification for the first time, set the corresponding data structure, and realized the methods for 3D reconstruction with 2D engineering drawings.


4. In the cooperation with the Digital Fashion Lmt., he and his cooperators have developed the world's leading 3D garment design software, LookStailorX. This software has been applied in the schools of dressing design in Kobe and in LOOK, a famous garment company in Japan. Referto the web site: for details.


5. In the cooperation with Hangzhou Liveforce Technology Lmt, he and his cooperators have exploited TUXI, a package of software with a user-friend sketch interface for interactive cartoon toys design. Refer to for details.
