Marching Cubes’ methods first offered visual access to experimental and theoretical data. The implementation of this method usually relies on a small lookup table. Many enhancements and optimizations of Marching Cubes still use it. However, this lookup table can lead to cracks and inconsistent topology. This paper introduces a full implementation of Chernyaev’s technique to ensure a topologically correct result, i.e. a manifold mesh for any input data. It completes the original paper for the… CONTINUE READING
