B-Mesh : A Fast Modeling System for Base Meshes of 3 D Articulated Shapes

  title={B-Mesh : A Fast Modeling System for Base Meshes of 3 D Articulated Shapes},
  author={Zhongping Ji and Ligang Liu and Yigang Wang},
This paper presents a novel modeling system, called B-Mesh, for generating base meshes of 3D articulated shapes. The user only needs to draw a one-dimensional skeleton and to specify key balls at the skeletal nodes. The system then automatically generates a quad dominant initial mesh. Furt he subdivision and evolution are performed to refine the initial mesh and generate a quad mesh which has good edge flow a long the skeleton directions. The user can also modify and manipulate the shape by… 

Computational Object-Wrapping Rope Nets

This article proposes to compute a rope net that can tightly wrap around various 3D shapes and proposes a discrete-continuous optimization approach, where the topological constraints are satisfied in the discrete phase and the geometrical goals are achieved in the continuous stage.



Sketch-based subdivision models

This paper presents an intuitive and interactive approach for using sketch-based interface to design subdivision models and is oriented towards quad-based systems such as Catmull-Clark, but could well be adopted in other subdivision schemes.

Automatic rigging and animation of 3D characters

This work presents a method for animating characters automatically, given a static character mesh and a generic skeleton, that adapts the skeleton to the character and attaches it to the surface, allowing skeletal motion data to animate the character.

Algorithms for Interactive Editing of Level Set Models

These algorithms include distance calculations, scan conversion, closest point determination, fast marching methods, bounding box creation, fast and incremental mesh extraction, numerical integration and narrow band techniques that provide the capabilities required for interactive editing of level set models.

Domain connected graph: the skeleton of a closed 3D shape for animation

The DCG not only preserves the topology information of a 3D object, but is also less sensitive than MAT to the perturbation of shapes, and conforms to human perception.

Modeling by example

This paper provides methods with which a user can search a large database of 3D meshes to find parts of interest, cut the desired parts out of the meshes with intelligent scissoring, and composite them together in different ways to form new objects.

Shape modeling by sketching using convolution surfaces

A user-friendly modeling system that interactively generates 3D organic-like shapes from user drawn sketches with the advantage of requiring no optimization step for fitting the 3D shape to the 2D contours and avoids any non-desired oscillation of the reconstructed surface.

FiberMesh: designing freeform surfaces with 3D curves

This system provides real-time algorithms for both control curve deformation and the subsequent surface optimization and it is shown that one can create sophisticated models using this system, which have not yet been seen in previous sketching or functional optimization systems.

Interactive multi-resolution modeling on arbitrary meshes

This paper generalizes powerful multiresolution techniques to arbitrary triangle meshes without requiring subdivision connectivity to obtain very fast mesh smoothing algorithms which are able to reduce noise from a geometrically specified frequency band in a multi-resolution decomposition.

Teddy: a sketching interface for 3D freeform design

This work presents a sketching interface for quickly and easily designing freeform models such as stuffed animals and other rotund objects and shows that a first-time user typically masters the operations within 10 minutes, and can construct interesting 3D models within minutes.
