  • We present a new approach to interactive modeling of freeform surfaces. Instead of a fixed mesh of control points, the model presented to the user is that of an infinitely malleable surface, with no fixed controls. The user is free to apply control points and curves which are then available as handles for direct manipulation. The complexity of the surface’s shape may be increased by adding more control points and curves, without apparent limit. Within the constraints imposed by the controls… CONTINUE READING
