A Calligraphic Interface for Interactive Free-Form Modeling with Large Datasets

B. Rodrigues De Araujo, J.A.P. Jorge
2005 XVIII Brazilian Symposium on Computer Graphics and Image Processing (SIBGRAPI'05)  
We present a sketching interface for modeling shapes defined by large sets of points. Our system supports powerful modeling operations that are applied directly to the points defining the surface.  ...  By combining these operations we can create complex shapes, including objects with sharp features.  ...  This allows that during expansion, we can easily change the function behavior for our polygonizer when corners are detected and adapting the edge length correctly.  ...

Surface Curvature Estimation for Edge Spinning Algorithm [chapter]

Martin Cermak, Vaclav Skala
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper presents an adaptive modification of the Edge spinning method for polygonization of implicit surfaces.  ...  The method insists on the shape of triangles and the accuracy of resulting approximation as well.  ...  This algorithm produces badly-shaped triangles but it is fast and also stable for complex implicit surfaces with C 0 continuity, only. 5 shows the object modeled as intersection of two spheres.  ...

Interactive techniques for implicit modeling

Jules Bloomenthal, Brian Wyvill
1990 Proceedings of the 1990 symposium on Interactive 3D graphics - SI3D '90  
Recent research has demonstrated the usefulness of implicit surfaces for modeling geometric objects.  ...  Principally this is due to the difficulty of controlling the shape of implicit surfaces while displaying the changes quickly enough for use within an interactive design environment.  ...  Acknowledgements We thank a number of individuals and organizations for their assistance.  ...

An Improved Growing Deformable Surface Patches Model for Analysis of Medical Images

Xujian Chen, Eam Khwang Teoh
2005 IAPR International Workshop on Machine Vision Applications  
Further more, surface curvature adaptiveness is achieved in the proposed deformable model by associating the surface curvature with the size of the surface patches.  ...  With the growing framework, the proposed deformable model could achieve topology adaptive surface extraction by connecting new surface patches with active patches and automated triangulating the square  ...  Deformable models have mainly two formulations: parametric form and implicit form. The advantage of implicit deformable models is their topological adaptability of the model.  ...

Element-wise mixed implicit-explicit integration for stable dynamic simulation of deformable objects

B. Fierz, J. Spillmann, M. Harders
2011 Proceedings of the 2011 ACM SIGGRAPH/Eurographics Symposium on Computer Animation - SCA '11  
First, we detect the ill-shaped simulation elements which hinder the stable explicit integration of the element nodes as a pre-computation step.  ...  This is commonly done by employing either an explicit or an implicit integration scheme. While explicit methods are only stable for small time steps, implicit methods are unconditionally stable.  ...  Acknowledgements We want to thank the reviewers for their valuable input. This research was supported by the EU project PASSPORT FP7 ICT-2007-223894.  ...

Simultaneous Tracking of Multiple Objects Using Fast Level Set-Like Algorithm

Martin Maska, Pavel Matula, Michal Kozubek, Marc Herbstritt
2011 Doctoral Workshop on Mathematical and Engineering Methods in Computer Science  
A topological flexibility of implicit active contours is of great benefit, since it allows simultaneous detection of several objects without any a priori knowledge about their number and shapes.  ...  The potential of the modified algorithm is demonstrated on both synthetic and real image data.  ...  Miroslav Vařecha for providing the time-lapse series of MCF-7 cell line.  ...

Mesh Forging: Editing of 3D-Meshes Using Implicitly Defined Occluders [article]

G. H. Bendels, R. Klein
2003 Symposium on geometry processing : [proceedings]. Symposium on Geometry Processing  
Our method resembles and was in fact motivated by the forging process where an anvil is used to give the manipulated object the desired shape.  ...  In recent years the ease of use and the flexibility in the editing process shifted into focus in modelling and animation applications.  ...  In implicit modelling, contact situations between two surfaces S i = {p ∈ Ê | f i (p) = c}, i ∈ {1, 2} are easily detected by checking for points p satisfying both f 1 (p) ≤ c and f 2 (p) ≤ c.  ...
