FlowRep software identifies 'curve networks' to sketch 3D shapes as 2D line drawings

Alla Sheffer, a computer scientist at Canada’s University of British Columbia, has developed software called “FlowRep” that can extract the “descriptive compact 3D curve networks” from manmade 3D shapes and use them to create visually informative 2D sketches. There are many ways that we can discern the shape of a physical 3D object: we can turn it over in our hands, look at it from different angles, or even observe where shadows fall across its surface. But when we try to recreate a 3D shape as a 2D sketch, things can get a little bit muddled. Think about it […]
