An Analyze-and-Edit Approach to Shape Manipulation

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

iWires is a novel approach based on the argument that man-made models can be distilled using a few special 1D wires and their mutual relations. So, prior to editing, is performed a light-weight analysis of the input shape to extract a descriptive set of wires. Analyzing the individual and mutual properties of the wires, and augmenting them with geometric attributes makes them intelligent and ready to be manipulated.
