This paper introduces a new method to stylize 3D geometry. The key observation is that the surface normal is an effective instrument to capture different geometric styles. Centered around this observation, we cast stylization as a shape analogy problem, where the analogy relationship is defined on the surface normal. This formulation can deform a 3D shape into different styles within a single framework. One can plug‐and‐play different target styles by providing an exemplar shape or an energy… Expand


Cubic stylization
A 3D stylization algorithm that can turn an input shape into the style of a cube while maintaining the content of the original shape is presented, which serves as a non-realistic modeling tool where one can incorporate many artistic controls to create stylized geometries. Expand
Shape‐Up: Shaping Discrete Geometry with Projections
A unified optimization framework for geometry processing based on shape constraints provides a systematic way of building new solvers for geometryprocessing and produces similar or better results than state‐of‐the‐art methods. Expand
As-rigid-as-possible shape manipulation
An interactive system that lets a user move and deform a two-dimensional shape without manually establishing a skeleton or freeform deformation (FFD) domain beforehand and uses quadratic error metrics so that each minimization problem becomes a system of linear equations. Expand
As-rigid-as-possible surface modeling
This work argues that defining a modeling operation by asking for rigidity of the local transformations is useful in various settings, and devise a simple iterative mesh editing scheme based on this principle, that leads to detail-preserving and intuitive deformations. Expand
Nonlinear spectral geometry processing via the TV transform
A novel computational framework for digital geometry processing, based upon the derivation of a nonlinear operator associated to the total variation functional, yielding a convenient multiscale representation akin to Laplacian-based methods, while at the same time avoiding undesirable over-smoothing effects typical of such techniques.

Learning Detail Transfer based on Geometric Features
This paper proposes a method for realistically transferring details from existing high‐quality 3D models to simple shapes that may be created with easy‐to‐learn modeling tools using metric learning to find a combination of geometric features that successfully predicts detail‐map similarities on the source mesh.

The Lit Sphere: A Model for Capturing NPR Shading from Art
This work introduces a technique for capturing custom artistic shading models from sampled art work to allow users to easily generate shading models which give the impression of light, depth, and material properties as accomplished by artists. Expand
A simple geometric model for elastic deformations
We advocate a simple geometric model for elasticity: distance between the differential of a deformation and the rotation group. It comes with rigorous differential geometric underpinnings, bothExpand
A Local/Global Approach to Mesh Parameterization
A local/global algorithm, which combines a local mapping of each 3D triangle to the plane, using transformations taken from a restricted set, with a global “stitch” operation of all triangles, involving a sparse linear system. Expand
Real-time non-rigid reconstruction using an RGB-D camera
A combined hardware and software solution for markerless reconstruction of non-rigidly deforming physical objects with arbitrary shape in real-time, an order of magnitude faster than state-of-the-art methods, while matching the quality and robustness of many offline algorithms. Expand
