This paper presents the implementation of a surface mesh on a genus-zero manifold with 3D scattered data of sculpture surfaces using the conformal self-organizing map (CSM). It starts with a regular mesh on a sphere and gradually shapes the regular mesh to match its object’s surface by using the CSM. It can drape a uniform mesh on an object with a high degree of conformality. It accomplishes the surface reconstruction and also defines a conformal mapping from a sphere to the object’s manifold.
