VORPALINE mesh generator

Keywords: 3D modeling - Unstructured heterogeneous meshes

Scientific Description: This software is the result of the team's work on the parameterization of surfaces and volumes, on the generation of Voronoi diagrams and mesh generation.

Functional Description: VORPALINE is a surfacic and volumetric mesh generator, for simplicial meshes (triangles and tetrahedra), for quad-dominant and hex-dominant meshes. It also contains surfacic and volumic parameterization modules.

Release Functional Description: Computer vision algorithms allow us to reconstruct surfaces in a 3d scene. The colours associated with these surfaces can be stored in textures, but these are often incomplete due to a lack of reliable data. For example, some points on the surface are not present in the images, are insufficiently illuminated or, on the contrary, in a reflection that does not give the true color of the object. We have developed in Vorpaline an algorithm capable of generating these missing colors from those present in their vicinity. The originality of our approach is the optimization according to the neighbourhoods defined on the surface and not in the texture space.
