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.
9's breakthrough subdivision surface and implicit surface
Expanded Implicit Surface
Support including Rendertime Displacements
geometric primitives (sometimes known as blobs or
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 parametric and implicit surfaces
are very often used in the sphere of computer graphics.
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
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.
Beyond Blobs: Recent Advances in Implicit Surfaces
Co-Organizers: Greg Turk, Georgia Institute of Technology Terry S.
Papers from a December 2005 conference describe recent work in the fields of computer-aided design and computer graphics, in the areas of curves, surfaces, subdivision of surfaces, implicit surfaces
and point-based surfaces, shape analysis, CAD systems, and reverse engineering and industrial applications.
