  • Compression, Segmentation, and Modeling of Filamentary Volumetric Data 

    McCormick, B.; Busse, B.; Doddapaneni, P.; Melek, Z.; Keyser, J. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    We present a data structure for the representation of filamentary volumetric data, called the L-block. While the L-block can be used to represent arbitrary volume data sets, it is particularly geared towards representing ...
  • 3D Discrete Skeleton Generation by Wave Propagation on PR-Octree for Finite Element Mesh Sizing 

    Quadros, W. R.; Shimada, K.; Owen, S. J. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    This paper proposes a new algorithm to generate a disconnected, three-dimensional (3D) skeleton and an application of such a skeleton to generate a finite element (FE) mesh sizing function of a solid. The mesh sizing ...
  • Connected and Manifold Sierpinski Polyhedra 

    Akleman, E.; Srinivasan, V. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    In this paper, we present a subdivision-inspired scheme to construct generalized Sierpinski polyhedron. Unlike usual Sierpinski polyhedra construction schemes, which create either an infinite set of disconnected tetrahedra ...
  • Image Based Bio-CAD Modeling and Its Applications to Biomedical and Tissue Engineering 

    Starly, B.; Darling, A.; Gomez, C.; Nam, J.; Sun, W.; Shokoufandeh, A.; Regli, W. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    CAD has been traditionally used to assist in engineering design and modeling for representation, analysis and manufacturing. Advances in Information Technology and in Biomedicine have created new uses for CAD with many ...
  • Topological and Geometric Beautification of Reverse Engineered Geometric Models 

    Langbein, F. C.; Marshall, A. D.; Martin, R. R.; Mills, B. I.; Gao, C. H. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    Boundary representation models reverse engineered from 3D range data suffer from various inaccuracies caused by noise in the measured data and the model building software. Beauti cation aims to improve such models in a ...
  • Physics-based Modelling and Simulation of Functional Cloth for Virtual Prototyping Applications 

    Fontana, M.; Rizzi, C.; Cugini, U. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    A CAD-oriented system is proposed for the design of complex-shaped functional cloth, provided with a physics-based modelling core for simulation and virtual prototyping tasks. Textiles are physically modelled as particle ...
  • History Based Reactive Objects for Immersive CAD 

    Convard, T.; Bourdot, P. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    Virtual Environments (VE) allow direct 3D interaction, better perception of shapes and a feel of immersion, properties that are highly desirable for design tasks. Traditional CAD software extensively use WIMP interfaces ...
  • Shape Similarity Measurement Using Ray Distances for Mass Customization 

    Hwang, T. J.; Lee, K.; Jeong, J. H.; Oh, H. Y. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    Custom-tailored products are defined as products having various sizes and shapes tailored to meet the customer's different tastes or needs. Thus fabrication of custom-tailored products inherently involves inefficiency. To ...
  • Contour Interpolation with Bounded Dihedral Angles 

    Bereg, S.; Jiang, M.; Zhu, B. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    In this paper, we present the first nontrivial theoretical bound on the quality of the 3D solids generated by any contour interpolation method. Given two arbitrary parallel contour slices with n vertices in 3D, let a be ...
  • Using Cayley Menger Determinants 

    Michelucci, D.; Foufou, S. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    We use Cayley-Menger Determinants (CMDs) to obtain an intrinsic formulation of geometric constraints. First, we show that classical CMDs are very convenient to solve the Stewart platform problem. Second, issues like distances ...
  • Shortest Circuits with Given Homotopy in a Constellation 

    Michelucci, D.; Neveu, M. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    Abstract A polynomial method is described for computing the shortest circuit with a prescribed homotopy on a surface. The surface is not described by a mesh but by a constellation: a set of sampling points. Points close ...
  • Plumber: A Multi-scale Decomposition of 3D Shapes into Tubular Primitives and Bodies 

    Mortara, M.; Patane, G.; Spagnuolo, M.; Falcidieno, B.; Rossignac, J. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    Plumber is a specialized shape classi cation method for detecting tubular features of 3D objects represented by a triangle mesh. The Plumber algorithm segments a surface into connected components that are either body parts ...
  • Actual Morphing: A Physical-Based Approach for Blending Two 2D/3D Shapes 

    Hu, S. M.; Li, C. F.; Zhang, H. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    When two topologically identical shapes are blended, various possible transformation paths exist from the source shape to the target shape. Which one is the most plausible? Here we propose that the transformation process ...
  • Euler Operators for Stratified Objects with Incomplete Boundaries 

    Gomes, A. J. P. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    Stratified objects such as those found in geometry-based systems (e.g. CAD systems and animation systems) can be stepwise constructed and manipulated through Euler operators. The operators proposed in this paper extend ...
  • Handling Degeneracies in Exact Boundary Evaluation 

    Ouchi, K.; Keyser, J. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    We present a method for dealing with degenerate situations in an exact boundary evaluation system. We describe the possible degeneracies that can arise and how to detect them. We then present a numeric perturbation method ...
  • Efficient Processing of 3D Scanned Models 

    Scopigno, R. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    The construction of detailed and accurate 3D models is made easier by the increasing diffusion of automatic sampling devices (often called 3D scanners). These allow to build digital models of real 3D objects in a cost- and ...
  • Making the Most of Using Depth Reasoning to Label Line Drawings of Engineering Objects 

    Varley, P. A. C.; Martin, R. R.; Suzuki, H. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    Automatic creation of B-rep models of engineering objects from freehand sketches would benefit designers. A subgoal is to take a single line drawing (with hidden lines removed), and from it deduce an initial 3D geometric ...
  • B-rep SE: Simplicially Enhanced Boundary Representation 

    Freytag, M.; Shapiro, V. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    Boundary representation (B-rep) is a popular representation scheme for mechanical objects due to its ability to accurately represent piecewise smooth surfaces bounding solids. However, non-trivial topology and geometry of ...

    Michalik, P.; Bruderlin, B. D. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    In this paper we describe the design of B-spline surface models by means of curves and tangency conditions. The intended application is the conceptual constraint-driven design of surfaces from hand-sketched curves. The ...
  • Reconstruction with 3D Geometric Bilateral Filter 

    Miropolsky, A.; Fischer, A. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    In recent years, reverse engineering (RE) techniques have been developed for surface reconstruction from 3D scanned data. Typical sampling data, however, usually is large scale and contains unorganized points, thus leading ...
