AbstractThis paper gives an overview of two recent techniques for high-quality surface constructions: polar layout and the guided approach. We demonstrate the challenge of high-quality surface construction by examples since the notion of surface quality lacks an overarching theory. A key ingredient of high-quality constructions is a good layout of the surface pieces. Polar layout simplifies design and is natural where a high number of pieces meet. A second ingredient is separation of shape design from surface…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
