Simple Method for Constructing NURBS Surfaces from Unorganized Points

  title={Simple Method for Constructing NURBS Surfaces from Unorganized Points},
  author={Nallig Leal and Esmeide Leal and John Willian Branch},
In this paper, a new method for constructing NURBS surfaces from scattered and unorganized points is presented. The method is easy to implement and allows fitting a NURBS surface to a scattered point cloud without constructing either NURBS patches networks or polygon meshes. Based on the projection of the points onto the regression plane of the cloud, the method detects both regions where the cloud lacks points, and regions where the cloud is too dense. Then, by inserting and removing points… CONTINUE READING
