This article presents a general sweeping technique for nonuniform rational B-splines. This operator allows sweeps with several cross sections along a 3D path. One can scale the cross sections along the path according to the shape of a profile curve. The definition of the resulting surface is inherited from the initial curves, and you compute its control… CONTINUE READING
