Paper Abstract

Few three-dimensional object representation systems allow non-rigid connections between components of the object. We define a representation scheme that permits parameterized non-rigid connections, allowing one definition to specify a range of permissible configurations of an aggregate object. This representation can be used to generate 3-D instantiations of particular configurations, and 2-D projected images of particular 3-D instantiations. General issues involved in constructing such an object representation are outlined. The syntax of component description and connection types for our specific system is reviewed, along with the semantics of the allowable ranges of movement associated with each connection type. The actual representation system modules are also described.
