Convolution Surfaces using Volume Bounding

- Computer Science2019 9th International Conference on Advanced Computer Information Technologies (ACIT)
- 2019

A recursive algorithm for object space subdivision of free-form surfaces is described and it is shown that the bounding surfaces are close to the surface of the convolution, which greatly reduces the number of calculations when finding points on the Convolution surface.

This comprehensive introduction develops the fundamental concepts and techniques of implicit surface modeling, rendering, and animating in terms accessible to anyone with a basic background in computer graphics.

Implicit Sweep Objects

- 1996

All these models of implicit surfaces, which include many models proposed in the literature, namely blobs, metaballs, soft objects, distance surfaces, and convolution surfaces, are grouped under the generic name: iso-surfaces.

Function representation in geometric modeling: concepts, implementation and applications

- Mathematics, Computer ScienceThe Visual Computer
- 2006

This work uses a high-level geometric language that can extend the interactive modeling system by input symbolic descriptions of primitives, operations, and predicates and supports combinations of representational styles, including constructive geometry, sweeping, soft objects, voxel-based objects, deformable and other animated objects.

Volumetric shape description of range data using “Blobby Model”

- Computer ScienceSIGGRAPH
- 1991

The "Blobby Model" is introduced for automatically generating a shape description from range data which can express a 3D surface as an isosurface of a scalar field which is produced by a number of field generating primitives.

Field functions for implicit surfaces

- Computer ScienceThe Visual Computer
- 2005

Some of the problems of choosing suitable keys are examined and some new field functions are introduced that increase the range of shapes available as keys that can make the dynamic shape changes seen in hand animation seen in animation.

A Generalization of Algebraic Surface Drawing

- Mathematics, Computer ScienceTOGS
- 1982

A new algorithm applicable to other functional forms, in particular to the summation of several gaussian density distributions is presented, created to model electron density maps of molecular structures but can be used for other artistically interesting shapes.

Decorating implicit surfaces

- Computer ScienceSIGGRAPH
- 1995

These results provide a unified representation scheme for a variety of texturing techniques that were previously incompatible, allowing more efficient manipulation, storage, and rendering of textured objects and a fuller use of current texture mapping hardware.
