Surface lofting and smoothing with skeletal-lines

Abstract

Abstmet. A method of surface definition and smoothing using a set of three-dimensional skeletal-lines is given. The skeletal-lines represent the essential features of a surface and can be individually smoothed using the first divided difference. The modified skeletal-lines are automatically generated by back substitution from the smoothed first divided difference lines. In this way a surface can be defined and smoothly adjusted through a set of sparse. irregular, inconsistent data.
