Abstract:

A new method is presented for calculating N-sided surface patches. The algorithm generates a subdivision surface which satisfies arbitrary Csup 1 boundary conditions. The proposed subdivision scheme is based on a Catmull-Clark type subdivision scheme that operates in the surface interior. Near the boundary we introduce new subdivision rules that involve the given boundary conditions. The generated subdivision surface is Csup 2-continuous except at one extraordinary point. In the neighborhood of this point the surface curvature is bounded.
