Paper Abstract

Integer versions of subdivision and corner cutting algorithms of NURBS curves are presented. The algorithms are used to render NURBS curves of any degree on a raster device by either computing a polygonal approximation or by turning on pixels that are closest to the curve. Because of the integer arithmetic used, the algorithms are easily cast in hardware.
