Progressive binary partitioning trees    In this project I introduce a dataflow pipeline for modeling complex geometric shapes. A pipelined dataflow was always used in graphics rendering engines; its use for modeling is very new. I use balanced BSP trees as progressive representations of shapes with multiple levels of detail....More...
