Abstract:
We propose a novel approach, called Progressive Parameterizations, to compute foldover-free parameterizations with low isometric distortion on disk topology meshes. Instead of using the input mesh as a reference to define the objective function, we introduce a progressive reference that contains bounded distortion to the parameterized mesh and is as close as possible to the input mesh. After optimizing the bounded distortion energy between the progressive reference and the parameterized mesh, the parameterized mesh easily approaches the progressive reference, thereby also coming close to the input. By iteratively generating the progressive reference and optimizing the bounded distortion energy to update the parameterized mesh, our algorithm achieves high-quality parameterizations with strong practical reliability and high efficiency. We demonstrate that our algorithm succeeds using a massive test data set containing over 20712 complex disk topology meshes. Compared to the state-of-the-art methods, our method possesses higher computational efficiency and practical reliability.
