A theoretical approach to construct free form surfaces is presented. We develop the concepts that arise when a free form surface is generated by tracing a mesh, using differentiable manifold theory, and generalizing the B-spline scheme. This approach allows to define a family of practical schemes. Four different applications of the generic approach are also presented in this paper.
