Abstract:

We introduce curvature continuous regular free-form surfaces with triangular control nets. These surfaces are composed of quartic box spline surfaces, and are piecewise polynomial multisided patches of total degree 8 which minimize some energy integral. The Bezier nets can be computed efficiently from the spline control net by some fixed masks, i.e., matrix multiplications.
