Abstract

Subdivision surfaces have become popular in Computer Aided Design (CAD) and animation packages. Popular choices include Loop, Catmull-Clark, Doo-Sabin, etc. Subdivision surfaces have many advantages over the traditional use of NURBS, which are problematic where multiple patches meet. Possible applications of subdivision surfaces are surface reconstruction, mesh compression and reverse engineering of dense triangle meshes. We present the Loop subdivision scheme as a tool to approximate dense triangle meshes of arbitrary topology. The paper shows the process as well as some satisfactory results of CAD models.
