Using the limit point formula of the Loop subdivision scheme, we propose a very simple and efficient method for constructing interpolation surface of triangular meshes by Loop subdivision scheme. The excellent properties of the method are: (1) Locality: the perturbation of a given vertex only influences the surface shape near this vertex. (2) Efficiency: the locations of new points can be computed with explicit formulae. (3) Easiness in implementation: only the geometric rule of the first step
