Precise flattening of cubic Bézier segments

Abstract

A Bézier curve segment is generally rendered by subdividing it into a series of disjoint curve subsegments, and then approximating each subsegment by joining its endpoints by a line segment (chord). The maximum transverse deviation of each curve subsegment from the corresponding chord (the achieved flatness) should be no greater than a minimum error value… (More)
