Sketch-Based Modeling of Free-Form Objects using Pen Tablet
Computer Engineering Department
The traditional WIMP (Window, Icon, Menu, Pointer) user interface paradigm is both functional and powerful in various applications, including 3D modeling. But creating a complex model using this traditional approach is cumbersome for novice users. A recent trend is to support beginners with more direct and natural interfaces, which lead to sketch-based modeling techniques. We based our work on a sketch-based technique that uses Rotational Blending Surfaces for modeling a variety of free form 3D objects. We will further enhance this approach using pen tablet's pressure capabilities to define more complex blending surfaces and to give a better user interface for common translation tasks.
