D NURBS A Physics Based Geometric Design Framework

  title={D NURBS A Physics Based Geometric Design Framework},
  author={Demetri Terzopoulos},
This paper presents dynamic NURBS or D NURBS a physics based generalization of non uniform ra tional B splines NURBS have become a de facto standard in commercial modeling systems because of their power to represent both free form and common analytic shapes Traditionally however NURBS have been viewed as purely geometric primitives which require the designer to interactively adjust many degrees of freedom DOFs control points and associated weights to achieve desired shapes The con ventional… CONTINUE READING
