    meshmixer: an interface for rapid mesh composition



    In recent years a wide variety of mesh editing techniques have been developed for tasks such as smoothing, deformation, and parameterization. Comparatively fewer alternatives are available for composition tasks, such as combining parts of existing meshes. As designs often evolve from a combination of existing ideas and models, rapid composition techniques could significantly improve the workflow of mesh-based modeling tools. In our work we are exploring shape reuse and composition problems in 3D mesh modeling.
