Curves and Surfaces for CAGD
A Practical Guide Gerald E. Presents topical programming exercises useful to professionals and students alike. The book demonstrates how any engineering drawings — once only visualizable as “blocked out cubic shapes” and formerly aurfaces of being rendered into stamps and dies only via “French Curves” — now can be easily transformed into the projections of three-dimensional parametric surfaces, where the points in the drawings are addressed individually as a triple of Euclidean coordinates on lines and surfaces in a mathematical vector space.
