The α-preformation factors of medium and heavy-mass nuclei are calculated by using the cluster-formation model. The obtained preformation factors of even–even, odd-A, and odd–odd nuclei consist in both magnitude and trend with the general features predicted by standard calculations. The variation of α clustering affected by the evolution of nuclear structure is observed from different behaviors of preformation factors. We typically analyze the variation of preformation factors in the closed-shell N=126 and Z=82 regions, and discuss in detail the structural effects on α-cluster formation. This work shows the strong correlation between α-preformation factors and the shell structure, which would be a useful reference for microscopic cluster-model calculations of αα-decay half-lives.
