Despite extensive research and rapid increase of computing power, free-form object matching still remains a challenging problem in CAD/CAM areas. In this paper, various object features are discussed, and matching methods which use these features are introduced along with robust computational algorithms for umbilical points and intrinsic wireframes. The similarity of matched objects is assessed with three proposed tests. Each algorithm is demonstrated with examples.
