2 Modeling How do we . .. Create 3D objects? Store 3D objects? Use 3D objects? Different methods for different object representations In different phases (creation, storage, use) the same object may be represented in different ways. 3D Object Representations Raw data Point cloud Range image Polygon soup Surfaces Mesh Subdivision Parametric Implicit Solids Voxels BSP tree CSG Sweep High-level structures Scene graph Skeleton Application specific Conics: useful shapes inconvenient in 3D Polynomial Functions: hard to control Splines Linear: not smooth parameterization basis functions knots Hermite: global, not always predictable cubic basis functions composite parameterization Catmull-Rom: fast for animation, less smooth, Bezier: predictability, but no local control convex hull property B-Splines: no conics, no perspective transform NURBs!! Last time Correction from last time: Except for the tangent, Frenet Frame undefined for straight line A Physical Spline Instead use a series of segments defined in parametric form. u ) ( ) ( ) ( u z z u y y u x x = = = These functions determined by coordinates of P n
