Octree-based Approach for Real-time Visualization of Surfaces Defined by Signed Distance Fields (B.Sc. thesis)
Efficient solution for the estimation of surfaces of triangle-based objects through the use of signed distance functions. The solution is based on an octree data structure, which acts as a recipient to store and manage distance values of a given object. It works for any closed triangle mesh, and allows real-time visualization of operations such as the offset, the union, and the intersection.
