Radius blends, very important in geometric and solid modeling, can be seen as the trimmed envelope of a rolling sphere or a sweeping circle with a constant or variable radius that centers on a spine curve and touches the surfaces to be blended along the linkage curves. Usually, in variable-radius blending, the radius is difficult to specify, and the spine(More)
To fill an N-sided hole on a NURBS surface and to blend a corner formed by NURBS surfaces, we propose a regular N-sided open uniform quadratic subdivision surface derived by applying the open uniform quadratic subdivision scheme to a regular N-sided control mesh which is confined to the hole or to the region of the vertex blend. Boundary conditions such as(More)
The ability to control boundary behaviors is critical for the subdivision surface to become a useful representation in computer aided geometric design. Previous methods achieve boundary control by extending the boundary vertices of the control mesh, or by applying different subdivision rules to the boundary edges and vertices. This paper presents an open(More)
