One of the basic tasks that a modern CAD system should be able to accomplish, is the generation of a 'fair' or 'visually pleasing' curve from given data points. Even when a very efficient curve scheme like B-splines is used, it is quite possible that for some data sets the resulting curve is not fair enough. In this case, some 'processing' of the geometry of the curve is required in order to obtain an acceptable curve. The current trends regarding geometry processing for curves are the… CONTINUE READING
