Explicit Surface Remeshing
We present a new remeshing scheme based on the idea of improving mesh quality by a series of local modifications of the mesh geometry and connectivity. Our contribution to the family of local modification techniques is an areabased smoothing technique. Area-based smoothing allows the control of both triangle quality and vertex sampling over the mesh, as a function of some criteria, e.g. the mesh curvature. To perform local modifications of arbitrary genus meshes we use dynamic patch-wise parameterization. The parameterization is constructed and updated onthe-fly as the algorithm progresses with local updates. As a post-processing stage, we introduce a new algorithm to improve the regularity of the mesh connectivity. The algorithm is able to create an unstructured mesh with a very small number of irregular vertices. Our remeshing scheme is robust, runs at interactive speeds and can be applied to arbitrary complex meshes. Categories and Subject Descriptors (according to ACM CCS): I....
