Error bounded piecewise linear approximation of freeform surfaces
Computer-Aided Design, Vol. 28 (1) (1996) pp. 51-57
Two methods for piecewise linear approximation of freeform surfaces are presented. One scheme exploits an intermediate bilinear approximation and the other employs global curvature bounds. Both methodsattempt to adaptively create piecewise linear approximations of the surfaces, employing the maximum norm.
