We address the problem of computing a topology preserving isosurface from a volumetric grid using Marching Cubes for geometry processing applications. We present a novel topology preserving subdivision algorithm to generate an adaptive volumetric grid. Our algorithm ensures that every grid cell satisfies two local geometric criteria: a complex cell criterion and a star-shaped criterion. We show that these two criteria are sufficient to ensure that the surface extracted from the grid using… CONTINUE READING
