Abstract

A technique which combines numerical optimization methods with triangulation methods for generating mathematical representations of solids from three dimensional data is described. The solid representation obtained takes the form of an algebraic function whose level surface closely approximates the surface described by the data. The algebraic function is obtained via Implicit Solid Modeling, a constructive scheme for approximating Boolean volume set operations on implicitly defined primitive volumes, and is comprised of a blended union of spherical primitives.
