Efficient Trimmed NURBS Tessellation

  title={Efficient Trimmed NURBS Tessellation},
  author={{\'A}kos Bal{\'a}zs and Michael Guthe and R. Klein},
Interactive rendering of trimmed NURBS models is of great importance for CAD systems. For this the model needs to be transformed into a polygonal representation. This transformation can be either performed in a preprocessing step, at the cost of losing the capability to edit the surfaces, or on the fly during rendering. Since the number of frames per second is usually critical, efficient on the fly tessellation of trimmed NURBS surfaces is very important for interactive rendering and editing of…

Interactive high quality trimmed NURBS visualization using appearance preserving tessellation

A novel automatic tessellation algorithm that considers the illumination artifacts and is well suited both for the generation of static and dynamic LOD schemes with guaranteed visual fidelity and is capable of high quality visualization of further attributes like curvature, temperature, etc. on surfaces with little or no modification.

Direct trimming of NURBS surfaces on the GPU
