ABSTRACT
<p>Nonuniform rational B-spline (NURBS) curves and surfaces, which are based on rational and B-splines, are defined. The important characteristics of NURBS that have contributed to their wide acceptance as standard tools for geometry representation and design are summarized. Their application to representing conic sections and commonly used surfaces, designing curves and surfaces, and modifying shapes is examined.</p>
