Abstract—As we know, the mobile device screen is small. The lower accuracy of the model is relatively weak and the capacity to handle high detailed model is very limited. What’s more, the existing three-dimensional simplification algorithms are for the personal computer and they are not suitable for the mobile terminals. Thus, we propose a novel 3D model simplification algorithm based on feature points. We will find the model surface curvature of each vertex, based on the model feature points. For these points, we present a new method to obtain it. Experimental results show that the algorithm can accurately reflect the model changes of the local surface geometry, and effectively keep the details of the model characteristics.

Index Terms—simplification, edge-collapse, similar curvature, shape feature
