A High-Speed Algorithm for the Generation of Straight Lines and Circular Arcs
October 1979 (vol. 28 no. 10)
pp. 728-736
Y. Suenaga, Yamato Research Section, Yokosuka Electrical Communication Laboratory
Incremental generation of straight lines and circular arcs is important in various fields such as graphic displays, digital plotters, and numerical control systems. An improved algorithm of incremental curve generation called a modified displacement comparison method (MDCM) is proposed.
Index Terms:
thresholding, Circular arcs, curve generation, digital plotters, error criteria, graphic displays, incremental, numerical control, straight lines
