Piecewise Smooth Surface Reconstruction|
Hugues Hoppe, Tony D. DeRose, Tom Duchamp, Mark Halstead, Hubert Jin, John McDonald, Jean Schweitzer, Werner Stuetzle
We present a general method for automatic reconstruction of accurate, concise, piecewise smooth surface models from scattered range data. The method can be used in a variety of applications such as reverse engineering, and the automatic generation of CAD models from physical objects. Novel aspects of the method are its ability to model surfaces of ... [more]

Efficient, Fair Interpolation using Catmull-Clark Surfaces|
Mark Halstead, Michael Kass, Tony D. DeRose
We describe an efficient method for constructing a smooth surface that interpolates the vertices of a mesh of arbitrary topological type. Normal vectors can also be interpolated at an arbitrary subset of the vertices. The method improves on existing interpolation techniques in that it is fast, robust and general. Our approach is to compute a ... [more]
