Design by Subdivision

This paper examines the role that a modified Catmull-Clark subdivision process can have in the generation of complex geometrical forms. In a first step, this paper presents modifications to the subdivision process' weighting schemes. In a second step, this paper outlines strategies for a spatial specification of these weights using both intrinsic attributes of the mesh and external parameters. Finally, the paper presents forms generated with this modified process and method.
