Modeling with multiresolution subdivision surfaces

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Subdivision surfaces and their multiresolution extensions are a powerful representation for surface modeling and design. In this chapter we survey a variety of subdivision-based modeling methods including multiresolution deformations, boolean operations, cut-and-paste editing of surfaces, defining free-form sharp features and adding topologically complex detail. These notes are based on the articles "A Survey of Subdivision-Based Tools for Surface Modeling" by I. Boier-Martin, D. Zorin and F. Bernardini, and "Interactive modeling of topologically complex geometric detail" by J. Peng, D. Kristjansson and D. Zorin.
