Two families of cubic Hermite curves forming a parametric net are the basis of the bicubic Hermite surface. Learn more about Chapter 7: Bicubic Hermite. Parametric Bicubic Surfaces. ▫ The goal is to go from curves in space to curved surfaces in space. ▫ To do this, we will parameterize a surface. bicubic surfaces. We want to define We want to define smooth surfaces too. Parametric but also have the nice Hermite property of continuous tangent vector.

Substituting Equation 1 and 2 into Equation 3 gives the following equation of a bilinear surface: Equation 4 also tells us that a bilinear surface is obtained by simply blending the effects of the corner points after they are weighted by the blending functions 1- u 1- vu 1- v1- u vuv. The point P her,itev defined in this way will traverse the entire surface consistently with the increment of the parameter values u and v bkcubic 0 to 1.

Define 4 corner points in 3D space. Use proper mesh and views to display the surface. The principle curvatures are the roots of the following equation: As bicubjc in Figure 2, 16 boundary conditions are required to find the coefficients of the equation. Geometric properties of surfaces 1. Construct the boundary condition matrix [B] in Equation The bicubic equation can be written as.


For surfave 2-D parametric curve represented in terms of its arc length s. Equation 17 is often called the first fundamental quadratic form of a surface and is written as. Check out the definition of a?

We call the extreme values the? It is used to calculate cutter offsets for three-dimensional NC programming to machine surfaces, volume calculations, and shading bicuboc a surface model.

Thus, the boundary matrix for the F-surface patch becomes Figure 3. Draw the shortest path on the sphere.

Finally, write down the surface equations of your F-surface patch and write a simple Matlab program to draw the F-surface. We also assume that P 0 v and P 1 v are the internal division points of the line segments P 00 P 01 and P 10 P 11 respectively, in the ratio shrface We assume that this point is obtained by dividing the line segment between P 0 v and P 1 v in the ratio u: The tangent vectors at the corner points can be approximated in terms of the corner positions using the direction and the length of chord lines joining the corner points.

In general, two distinct points on a surface can be connected by many different paths, of different lengths, on the surface. Use 4 control points to generate a Bezier curve in 2D space.

The Gaussian curvature at a point on the surface is defined as. Hermite Bicubic Surface Because the blending functions are linear, the bilinear surface tends to be flat. Bicubic surfaces provide designers with better surface design tools when designing surfaces.


Hermite Bicubic Surface is an extension of Hermite cubic spline. Check out the latitudes and longitudes of Taipei, Tokyo, the North Pole, and San Francisco, and mark approximately the positions of the 4 cities on the earth.

And the unit normal vector is given by. Based on these assumptions, P 0 v and P 1 v are. The twist vector at a point on a surface measures the twist in the surface at the point. The normal to a surface is another important analytical property.

This is useful if tool paths are to be hicubic to mill the surface. Do the results make sense to you? Geodesics In general, two distinct points on a surface can be connected by hermiet different paths, of different lengths, on the surface.

Describe how you can determine the shortest distance between, say, San Francisco and Taipei. EFand G are the first fundamental, or metric, coefficients of the surface. The attributes to be stored would be only four corner points because the surface represented by Equation 4 can be reconstructed from these four corner points.
