The purpose of this paper is to provide yet another solution to a fundamental problem in computer aided geometric design, i.e., constructing a smooth curve satisfying given endpoint (position and tangent) conditions. A new class of curves, called optimized geometric Hermite (OGH) curves, is introduced. An OGH curve is defined by optimizing the magnitudes of(More)
A second order forward differences based subdivision depth computation technique for extra-ordinary Catmull-Clark subdivision surface (CCSS) patches is presented. The new technique improves a previous technique in that the computation of the subdivision depth is based on the patch’s curvature distribution, instead of its dimension. Hence, with the new(More)
A new method for constructing a Catmull–Clark subdivision surface (CCSS) that interpolates the vertices of a given mesh with arbitrary topology is presented. The new method handles both open and closed meshes. Normals or derivatives specified at any vertices of the mesh (which can actually be anywhere) can also be interpolated. The construction process is(More)
An algorithm to estimate subdivision depths for rational curves and surfaces is presented. The subdivision depth is not estimated for the given curve/surface directly. The algorithm computes a subdivision depth for the polynomial curve/surface of which the given rational curve/surface is the image under the standard perspective projection. This subdivision(More)
A new adaptive tessellation method for general CatmullClark subdivision surfaces is presented. Development of the new method is based on the observation that optimum adaptive tessellation for rendering purpose is a recursive error evaluation and globalization process. The adaptive tessellation process is done by generating an inscribing polyhedron to(More)
A new method for constructing interpolating Loop subdivision surfaces is presented. The new method is an extension of the progressive interpolation technique for B-splines. Given a triangular mesh M, the idea is to iteratively upgrade the vertices of M to generate a new control mesh $\overline{M}$ such that limit surface of $\overline{M}$ would interpolate(More)
