Title: Modeling 3D Meshes with Planar Faces
Craig Gotsman, Computer Science Department, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology
Date & Time: February 24, 2012 11:30
Venue: Conference Room, First Floor, K.R. Building.
Polyhedral meshes - those having planar faces - are very important in architectural and industrial design, but also notoriously difficult to generate in interactive 3D modeling systems. We describe an interactive system for producing and editing polyhedral meshes based on a control mesh paradigm. The interactivity is achieved thanks to a novel numerical procedure capable of solving the relevant optimization problem very efficiently, even for large data sets.
