The aim of implicit surface
reconstruction is to obtain an implicit function from unconstructed scattered data using interpolation or approximation.
Among particular topics are an example-driven symbol recognition approach based on key features in engineering drawings, spherical projective displacement mesh, a variational harmonic method for parameterizing the computational domain in two-dimensional isogeometric analysis, an efficient adaptive vortex particle method for real-time smoke simulation, the behavior-based simulation of real-time crown evacuation, and implicit surface
reconstruction based on adaptive clustering.
Here, underlying components are voxelized in a 3D grid and an implicit surface
for the skin is extracted.
Expanded Implicit Surface
Support including Rendertime Displacements
13] proposed an algorithm for detecting ridges and valley lines that combines multi-level implicit surface
fitting with finite-difference approximations.
Fluid Effects is integrated natively in Maya and includes: a fast interactive 2D solver, 3D fluids solver, interactive control with Maya Artisan(TM), an Ocean Shader, and volumetric and implicit surface
texturing and rendering.
This Implicit Surface
Rendering technology is a fast, flexible volumetric rendering framework capable of generating, animating, and imaging a wide range of complex surface types.
The implicit surfaces
of Schoen gyroid is defined by a function.
Some specific topics explored include certified meshing of families of isosurfaces, automatic generation of bas-reliefs from 3D shapes, deforming surface simplification based on dynamic geometry sampling, and topological correction of hypertextured implicit surfaces
for ray casting.
An alternative method is modeling through implicit surfaces
The parametric and implicit surfaces
are very often used in the sphere of computer graphics.
Twenty full papers and ten short papers from the June 2006 conference present recent research on shape matching and retrieval, modeling with implicit surfaces
, and various issues of shape analysis, representation, and processing.
