A System for the Non-Linear Modelling of Deformable Procedural Shapes

T. Lewis and M. W. Jones

Abstract

This paper describes a fully interactive modelling system, which we have called ClayWorks, for defining the implicit geometry of 3D objects using parametric base primitives and deformations. The goal of this system is to provide a means for describing object data and its creation history by using a series of parametric steps that can be modified post-creation in a non-linear manner. The advantages of this approach are that unlike other modelling approaches, it enables compact object descriptions, an intuitive modelling process, a simple approach to multiresolution objects, real-time feedback during the modelling process and a render independent object representation.
