A technique is presented for deforming solid geometric models in a free-form manner. The technique can be used with any solid modeling system, such as CSG or B-rep. It can deform surface primitives of any type or degree: planes, quadrics, parametric surface patches, or implicitly defined surfaces, for example. The deformation can be applied either globally or locally. Local deformations can be imposed with any desired degree of derivative continuity. It is also possible to deform a solid model…

Semiglobal deformation and correction of free- form surfaces using a mechanical alternative
TLDR
The method uses an analogy between the control polyhedron of a surface and the mechanical equilibrium of a bar network to provide real-time surface adjustment and precise control of curvature distribution.
A simple approach to interactive free-form shape deformations
TLDR
The proposed approach includes also shape deformations with multiple (real, auxiliary, and virtual) control points and constrained, directional, and anisotropic deformations and allows a user to edit a given shape interactively and intuitively.
