• Surfaces can be constructed from Cartesian equations
directly, and this is acceptable for speciﬁc applications,
usually involving interpolation. !
• As before, using a simple polynomial surface is a quick
and easy approach. ! Graphics Lecture 12: Slide 3! Non Parametric Polynomial Surface

• This formulation suffers the same problems as the nonparametric spline curve. It is a ﬁxed surface for a given
set of nine points. !
• We need more ﬂexibility for the design of surfaces. ! Graphics Lecture 12: Slide 5! Simple Parametric surfaces
