Approximate implicitization by point sampling & estimated normals
The approximate implicitization method, developed by the project partner at Johannes Kepler university `Linz', has been implemented in C++. We are planning to make the source code available as Open Source, from the project web page.
The `Linz' method is characterized by the simultaneous approximation of:
The method produces an approximate implicit representation of the form f(x, y,z) = ∑ (Ci Bi(x, y, z)) with basis Bi(x, y, z) and a certain coefficients Ci.
