Field-Aligned Isotropic Surface Remeshing

Comparison of our approach with representative state‐of‐the‐art approaches.


We present a novel isotropic surface remeshing algorithm that automatically aligns the mesh edges with an underlying directional field. The alignment is achieved by minimizing an energy function that combines both centroidal Voronoi tessellation (CVT) and the penalty enforced by a six‐way rotational symmetry field. The CVT term ensures uniform distribution of the vertices and high remeshing quality, and the field constraint enforces the directional alignment of the edges. Experimental results show that the proposed approach has the advantages of isotropic and field‐aligned remeshing. Our algorithm is superior to the representative state‐of‐the‐art approaches in various aspects.
