Gordon-Coons Surfaces^{}Gordon surfaces are surface interpolated between boundary curves; Coons surfaces are interpolated based on the four corners and assigned values for the partial derivatives at those points. Spline SurfacesA spline surface is one with spline coordinate curves. Lofting SurfacesLofting surfaces are a generalization of ruled surfaces, in a sense. They connect two (possibly different) curves by a 1-parameter family of curves. Surfaces of RevolutionA surface of revolution results from revolving a curve around a fixed axis. An example of a surface of revolution is the pseudosphere, which is the surface of revolution of a tractrix. |
