180 Wrapped Tubes

Herbert Edelsbrunner (Department of Computer Science, Duke University, Durham and Raindrop Geomagic, Research Triangle Park, USA)

Abstract: The 180 models collected in this paper are produced by sampling and wrapping point sets on tubes. The surfaces are represented as triangulated 2-manifolds and available as stl-files from the author s web site at www.cs.duke.edu/~edels. Each tube is obtained by thickening a circle or a smooth torus knot, and for some we use the degrees of freedom in the thickening process to encode meaningful information, such as curvature or torsion.

Keywords: Surface reconstruction, differential geometry, geometric design
