This book offers a comprehensive introduction to Subdivision Surface Modeling Technology focusing not only on fundamental theories but also on practical applications. It furthers readers’ understanding of the contacts between spline surfaces and subdivision surfaces, enabling them to master the Subdivision Surface Modeling Technology for analyzing subdivision surfaces. Subdivision surface modeling is a popular technology in the field of computer aided design (CAD) and computer graphics (CG) thanks to its ability to model meshes of any topology.

The book also discusses some typical Subdivision Surface Modeling Technologies, such as interpolation, fitting, fairing, intersection, as well as trimming and interactive editing. It is a valuable tool, enabling readers to grasp the main technologies of subdivision surface modeling and use them in software development, which in turn leads to a better understanding of CAD/CG software operations.

Key Features
  • Systematically introduces various useful modeling techniques for different subdivision surfaces
  • Provides an overview of fundamental subdivision schemes and modeling techniques including work on subdivision surfaces after 2010
  • Serves as a theoretical explanation of the subdivision modeling manual “Subdivision Surface Modeling” by Autodesk
