Paper Title:
General Subdivision Inferred from Catmull-Clark Subdivision Algorithm
  Abstract

Subdivision algorithms have emerged recently as a powerful and useful technique in modeling free-form surfaces. Subdivision algorithms exited at present however, being their disadvantages, can’t meet the demand of wide application in modeling surfaces and don’t still belong to a general theory. In this paper, a general subdivision algorithm is presented which is a general conclusion inferred from classical Catmull-Clark subdivision algorithm and can produce existing subdivision algorithm by selecting reasonable vertical weights and horizontal weights. The subdivision algorithm is an ideal resolution for keeping shape feature such as crease, corner and dart contrast to all existing subdivision algorithms, it also have the advantage of flexible weights selection, easily control of shape and high compute speed. Therefore, the algorithms are extensively applicable for shape modeling in computer aided geometric design, industrial prototype design and reverse engineering.
