We describe a method for free form surface design that uses a mesh formed by networks of curves of minimum energy to define surfaces satisfying position, normal, and curvature constraints. The work addresses difficult problems arising in solid modeling, specifically at difficult blending problems, e.g. a blend at a high order vertex with simultaneous convex and concave blends incident to it. The techniques that we describe here may also be applied to general free form surface design. Previous… Expand
