3DFlow: Continuous Summarization of Mesh-Editing Workflows

An algorithm for generating summarizations of mesh-editing workflows at any level of detail, from the original length to a single step. The algorithm supports both digital sculpting and low-poly modeling workflows created from repository commits or using instrumented software.

Practical Hex-Mesh Optimization via Edge-Cone Rectification

A novel framework for optimizing hex-mesh quality capable of generating inversion-free, high-quality meshes from poor initial inputs. The paper demonstrates the framework's robustness by optimizing numerous poor-quality input meshes generated using a variety of initial meshing methods and producing high-quality results.

Hexahedral Mesh Reparameterization From Aligned Base-Complex

This paper presents a first and complete pipeline to optimize the global structure of a hex-mesh, by identifying and removing those valid removal base-complex sheets that contain misaligned singularities, while keeping high geometric quality.

Dyadic T-Mesh Subdivision

This paper proposes a subdivision scheme extending Catmull-Clark and NURSS to analysis-suitable T-meshes that have no more than one T-joint per edge. The scheme has the same structure as Catmull-Clark. On regular T-meshes, it is a refinement scheme for a subset of standard T-splines.
