Paper Abstract

A method for reconstructing three dimensional objects from given cross-sectional data is described. The method utilizes both volumetric and surface techniques, and produces a triangular facet approximation to the surface of the object. Branching is automatically dealt with. The method, which uses univariate splines as an essential tool, also provides a very compact way of storing the reconstruction.
