Interactive Modeling with Mesh Surfaces (4:48 min.)

Abstract

In the world of modern surface design tools, a mesh is simply a data structure – a scaffold for higher-order basis functions which specify the “true” surface. The price paid for this analytic continuity is complexity in seemingly-simple tasks such as refinement, composition, and direct manipulation. But consider the lowly triangle mesh. With the ability to split and merge edges wherever more detail is needed, or stitch and sew arbitrary boundaries, unstructured high-resolution triangle meshes bring us much closer to the ideal of modeling at the level of surfaces rather than data structures (as has been previously noted).

Meshmixer

Meshmixer is a prototype design tool based on high-resolution dynamic triangle meshes. We are exploring the new capabilities of this surface representation for interactive design and fabrication, in the context of a practical system we release to the public.
