# Global and local deformations of solid primitives

@article{Barr1984GlobalAL, title={Global and local deformations of solid primitives}, author={Alan H. Barr}, journal={Proceedings of the 11th annual conference on Computer graphics and interactive techniques}, year={1984} }

New hierarchical solid modeling operations are developed, which simulate twisting, bending, tapering, or similar transformations of geometric objects. The chief result is that the normal vector of an arbitrarily deformed smooth surface can be calculated directly from the surface normal vector of the undeformed surface and a transformation matrix. Deformations are easily combined in a hierarchical structure, creating complex objects from simpler ones. The position vectors and normal vectors in… Expand
