Abstract
This article describes a method that uses deformable curves and deformable surfaces to generate a C1 continuous parametric surface from unorganized data points. The triangular patch was used as the surface element for generating an n-sided surface. A new method for generating the topology is also presented. The concept of elastically deformable shapes attracted toward data points by spring-like forces is used to seek the optimal shape which minimizes an associated energy functional.
