Triangulation of Discrete 3D Surfaces

In this section, the algorithm for the direct triangulation of parametric 3D surfaces presented in Section Direct Triangulation of 3D Surfaces is extended to the family of discrete surfaces represented by a triangular grid of arbitrary topology. The main emphasis is therefore focused not on the mesh generation itself but on the recovery of a smooth surface which should be geometrically similar with the original control grid and over which the actual mesh generation takes place.
