Paper Abstract

New surface construction algorithms are presented. The idea is based on Marching Cubes algorithm and the aim of the modification proposed in the present article is to provide topologically appropriate solutions that guarantee to produce triangulated closed surfaces as the equiscalar surface within a volume. There are roughly three variations of modifications; 1- connective, (root)2-connective and Adaptive Marching Cubes. Surface construction algorithms are also applicable to slice-by-slice solid modeling, such as laser stereolithography. An algorithm for obtaining contours on an intermediate slice interpolated between two slices is shown.
