Triangle-Mesh Simplification using Error Polyhedra

  title={Triangle-Mesh Simplification using Error Polyhedra},
  author={Mark Eastlick and Steve Maddock},
We present a novel and general framework for simpli fying triangle-meshes based on vertex decimation, as opposed to the common edge-collapse operation. Our basic simpli fication metric is based on the evaluation of the volume of error polyhedra; such a measure is the geometric analogue to the L1 norm between two functions. Unlike many other approaches, we perform triangulation in three-dimensions and utili se this extra information to increase simpli fication qualit y, dynamicall y making use… CONTINUE READING
