In this paper, we introduce a method to represent a given triangular model using a single triangle strip. Since this problem is NP-complete, we break the limitation by splitting adjacent triangles when necessary. The common edge is split at the mid-point, and the newly formed triangles are coplanar with their parent triangles. Hence, the resulting geometry of the model is visually and topologically identical to the original triangular model. Our method can develop any edge-connected oriented 2… CONTINUE READING
