summary An algorithm for approximate skinning through cross-sectionalNURBS curves is presented. The method eliminates the problem of dealing with huge amounts of control points obtained during the curvecompatability process. It also allows the designer to specify large numbers of cross-sections and approximately fit a smooth surface to these curves to any given tolerance. Depending on the tolerances used, up to99% of the control points can be eliminated.
