Mesh segmentation has become an important ingredient in many applications in computer graphics. This paper presents a novel interactive mesh segmentation technique which is based on a harmonic field defined on the mesh. The user marks a few freehand sketches on the mesh to specify the foreground and the background regions respectively. The algorithm then automatically constructs a harmonic field which reflects geometric features of the mesh. The graph cut technique is then applied to produce the segmentation results which is consistent to the user’s intention, and the boundary is further smoothed to remove the artifacts. Experimental results have shown that our method can generate satisfactory results for models with either simple or complicated shape details
