Sketch-Based Generation and Editing of Quad Meshes

The first user interface specifically designed to assist interactive creation of quad meshes. The system is based on a combination of sketch-based tools to define the edge flow and an autocompletion system that helps the user fill the gaps between existing portions of the mesh.

Integer-Grid Maps for Reliable Quad Meshing

Quadrilateral remeshing based on global parametrization enables high-quality results but suffers from limited reliability. This novel approach overcomes this drawback and consequently avoids tedious input parameter tuning. In addition to improving time efficiency in uniform quad remeshing, the algorithm outperforms state-of-the-art techniques for coarse quad layout construction.

Particle-Based Anisotropic Surface Meshing

This paper introduces a particle-based framework for anisotropic surface meshing, based on minimizing the inter-particle energies in a higher dimensional "embedding space", and compares the results qualitatively and quantitatively with the state of the art in anisotropic surface meshing on several examples.

Anisotropic Delaunay Meshes of Surfaces

Given a surface endowed with a tensor metric field, this paper proposes a new approach to generate an anisotropic surface mesh that approximates the surface with elements shaped according to the metric field.
