This paper discusses the problem of modeling on triangulated surfaces with geodesic curves. In the first part of the paper we define a new class of curves, called geodesic Bézier curves, that are suitable for modeling on manifold triangulations. As a natural generalization of Bézier curves, the new curves are as smooth as possible. In the second part we discuss the construction of C 0 and C 1 piecewise Bézier splines. We also describe how to perform editing operations, such as trimming, using… CONTINUE READING
