Course Goals

Geometric modeling underlies applications from computer animation and special effects, to advanced modeling software for industrial design and architecture, to rapid prototyping machines that "print" 3-D objects in plastic, and many others. Geometric models represent the shapes and spatial relationships of the environment that is being studied, permitting a much deeper analysis than would be possible otherwise. How these models are encoded, and how the algorithms that utilize them are designed, comprise the field of computer-aided geometric design (CAGD), which is the subject of this course.

We will discuss a wide variety of techniques for representing and analyzing these models. Our emphasis will be on parametric curves and surfaces, subdivision methods, and meshes.

Credit toward the semester grade will be allocated to each of the components as indicated in the following table.

Assignments 40%
Projects  20%
Final Exam 40%

Note: Final examination will be in-class, closed-book. More information will be provided prior to it.


Note: Here you can view or download the notes that we use in class. DO NOT depend solely on these notes as many details are missing. You should read the textbook and take notes in class. 





Note: Please zip your submission stuffs of the assignment into one single file either using WinZip or WinRAR. Name the file name as "" or "ID_Name_Project1" where ID is your unique ID number in the class.

Requirements on Assignments


Assignment Submission

What constitutes Creativity ?

Creativity is any substantial improvement beyond the basic solution - it can be applied to any part of the project. For example, the following are relevant in most cases :

Professional Conduct

As a student in our class, you are expected to conduct yourself in a professional manner.

Limited Collaboration Policy. Unless otherwise indicated, any homework assignment or programming exercise given in this class will be an individual assignment. The work you submit is to reflect the knowledge, understanding, and skill that you have attained as an individual. However, the instructor does want to encourage the development of a community of scholars who are actively engaged in discussion of the ideas related to this course. With this in mind, you are allowed to discuss solutions of the homework and programming problems with other students if done so according to the following guidelines:
