NURBS from PointClouds

Reverse Engineering NURBS from scanned Point Clouds

There are some applications that can automatically create NURBS surfaces from point clouds or meshes. Unfortunately the results are usually not acceptable. These NURBS-models can hardly be edited, cause they consist from many small patches and lot of surfaces with singularities.

I prefer to use the scanned data just as reference for modeling a clean and logical NURBS-topology. The following pages show the re-engineering of a yacht hull.
