Multisided patches
Pla García, Núria; Vigo Anglada, Marc; Cotrina Navau, Josep
We present a method to construct a patch of parametric surface of degree k + 1 that lls a n-sided hole, with n bigger than 2, and whose boundary coincides with a B-Spline, thus, the resulting patch can be easily connected with given B-Spline surfaces with xed continuity conditions. The method is inspired on a generic approach to construct free form surfaces, which gives a family of practical schemes to design surfaces from an arbitrary given mesh, using the di erentiable manifold theory. The input is a star shaped mesh which describes a generic n-hole and a surface in a neighborhood of the hole. The main advantages of the method are the following: arbitrary order k continuity conditions can be imposed; the involved hole can have an arbitrary number of sides and arbitrary shape (convex or not); the simplicity of the construction process gives an easy and exible method; and nally, the surface near the boundary is a B-Spline with piecewise uniform knot sequences and whose control points are vertices of the given mesh; both knot sequences and control points are easily computed. Implementation details to evaluate a surface point are given, showing that the de Boor algorithm can be exploited for efficiency.

N-sided patches with B-spline boundaries

We present a method to construct a patch of parametric surface of
degree k+1 that fills a n-sided hole, with bigger than 2, and whose
boundary coincides with a B-Spline, thus, the resulting patch can be
easily connected with given B-Spline surfaces with fixed continuity
conditions. The method is based on the generic approach by the same
authors to con-struct free form surfaces, which gives a family of
practical schemes to design surfaces from an arbitrary given mesh,
using the differentiable manifold the-ory. The proposal uses a star
shaped mesh which describes a generic n-hole and a surface in a
neighborhood of the hole. From this mesh, a set of charts is defined,
one associated to each vertex or face of the mesh, depending on the
parity of the input parameter k. A basis function and a control point
is defined from each chart, and the surface is obtained as a
baricentric combination of the control points using the defined basis
functions. The main advantages of the method are the following:
arbitrary order k continuity conditions can be imposed; the involved
hole can have an arbitrary number of sides and arbitrary shape (convex
or not) the simplicity of the construction process gives an easy and
flexible method; and finally, the surface near the boundary is a
B-Spline with piecewise uniform knot sequences and whose control
points are vertices of the given mesh. Implementation details to
evaluate a surface point are given, showing that the de Boor algorithm
can be exploited for efficiency.

Towards free form surfaces

A theoretical approach to construct free form surfaces is presented. We
develop the conceps 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.

Free form surfaces
Cotrina Navau, Josep; Pla García, Núria
A method to construct continuous order k surfaces of arbitrary
topological type by tracing a mesh that represents a 2-manifold is
presented. The presented approach constructs the surface from a
collection of pieces which overlap, using the known technology of
manifolds. The surface is built from the given mesh and two arbitrary
input parameters, k and n. The value of k gives the continuity of the
resulting surface and n controls the local influence of the vertices
of the mesh. The presented scheme generalizes the B-spline approach
in terms of manifolds. The surface that arises from regular zones of
the mesh is a tensorial product B-spline surface. For the rest, that
is, the irregular zones, the surface has the following good
properties: it is k continuous, affine invariant, the convex hull
property is guaranteed, and it has local control. The algorithm is
simple and efficient in time and space.

Modelling surfaces from planar irregular meshes
Cotrina Navau, Josep; Pla García, Núria
We present a method for constructing surfaces from irregular control
meshes that can be embedded in the plane. This method results from a
generalization of B-Splines using the known technology of
manifolds. The resulting surface can be built with {GC}^k
continuity.
The presented approach constructs the surface from a collection of
pieces which overlap. This method can be generalized to arbitrary
meshes to generate general closed surfaces or surfaces with handles by
application of an analogous reasoning locally in a general case.
