Extension of a New Method for Surface Reconstruction from Cross Sections
The principal steps of a new method to solve the problem of surface reconstruction from parallel cross sections are presented in this paper. This method constitutes the extension of one previously proposed by the authors using the skeleton to solve the investigation problem. The method guarantees the correct topology of the surface without altering the original contours. Some results are shown that illustrate the excellent performance of the method in particular difficult cases not solved previously. All the cases analyzed are manipulated in the same way. In real cases, the global time complexity improves the quadratic time of the quickest consulted methods.
