Procedural Reconstruction of NURBS Surfaces

By T.H. Wang

Abstract

A potential way to bridge the gap between complex form generation and models for physical manifestations is to panelize NURBS surfaces with polygonal faces. This paper investigates the transition from NURBS surface to a mesh solid through a procedural modelling approach, in the process, illustrating how a discretized planar surface can be reconstructed for form generation and further exploration. The paper promotes this approach as an efficient way to modelling complex forms using an example drawn from real life architecture to demonstrate a generative process with customized restructuring
