Optimizing polycube domain construction for hexahedral remeshing
Polycube mapping can provide regular and global parametric representations for general solid models. Automatically constructing effective polycube domains, however, is challenging. We present an algorithm for polycube construction and volumetric parameterization. The algorithm has three steps: pre-deformation, polycube construction and optimization, and mapping computation. Compared with existing polycube mapping methods, our algorithm can robustly generate desirable polycube domain shape and low-distortion volumetric parameterization. It can be used for automatic high-quality hexahedral mesh generation. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
