Surface Triangulation for Picture Production
November 1983 (vol. 3 no. 8)
pp. 45-51
Burkard Wordenweber, Cambridge University
Converting from boundary to faceted representation results in a model that is well suited for fast hidden-surface removal, shaded pictures, and finite element mesh generation.
