The proofs have been given substantially in full, to the end that the pupil may always have before him a model for his independent.
Subdivision surfaces Modeling can be performed by means of a dedicated program e. In some cases, there is no strict distinction between these phases; in such cases modeling is just part of the scene creation process this is the case, for example, with Caligari trueSpace and Realsoft 3D. Photogrammetry creates models using algorithms to interpret the shape and texture of real-world objects and environments based on photographs taken from many angles of the subject. Complex materials such as blowing sand, clouds, and liquid sprays are modeled with particle systems , and are a mass of 3D coordinates which have either points , polygons , texture splats , or sprites assigned to them. Main article: Virtual actor The first widely available commercial application of human virtual models appeared in on the Lands' End web site. The human virtual models were created by the company My Virtual Mode Inc.
Hidden surface removal is achieved either by Z-buffering where device hardware supports it , or using any standard technique for polygons e. These hidden surface-removal techniques can be greatly accelerated by taking advantage of guaranteed ordering of contours within a single object. Isoluminance contouring has four major advantages over polygonal representation methods:!.
Three-dimensional objects are typically represented exactly e. Such objects may be combined in useful ways using Boolean operators union, intersection, and difference , a technique known as constructive solid geometry CSG. The rendering of such objects often involves a tradeoff between visual realism and computational speed. Realistic images of objects greatly enhance the viewer's understanding of a rendered scene, but are typically prohibitively computationally intensive to produce without special hardware.
Applications such as medical imaging, bio molecular chemistry, mechanical design, and scientific data visualization often do not require photorealism. Isoluminance contouring is a new representational technique which attempts to provide economical realism at a level suitable for such applications.
Images produced are comparable to those produced by nonrecursive ray-tracing or Phong smooth-shading techniques, but at a fraction of the computational cost. The use of contouring to represent solid objects is far from new.
However, in existing schemes, contours are selected to have a constant value in one spatial dimension e. Isoluminance contours differ in that they are chosen such that the surface at each point of a given contour has the same luminous intensity.
For diffusely reflective objects, this corresponds to finding sets of points on the surface ofthe object where the surface normal subtends the same angle to a vector in the direction from the point to the light source position I.
A more detailed description of the isoluminance contouring of these primitive objects, including the computation of more general objects such as ellipsoids, is presented in ref. For simplicity, the objects discussed are assumed to be unpatterned, purely diffuse, or purely specular reflectors, illuminated by a single point source of white light. The construction and rendering of patterned objects with complex reflective behaviours and the use of multiple light sources and shadowing is discussed in ref.
Primitives To visualize the isoluminance contours of a diffusely reflective sphere, imagine the sphere as a planet with its north pole pointing directly toward the point light source. The isoluminance contours of this planetary sphere lie parallel to its lines of latitude and are distributed linearly along its north-south axis see Fig. Each contour is circular and lies in a plane perpendicular to L.
The middle contour passes through c. The surface intensities of the contours decrease from a maximal value at the first contour to a minimal intensity at some terminator contour before the middle contour.
The terminator contour depends on the radius of the sphere and the distance to the light source. For an infinitely distant light source, the terminator is the middle contour. Aft-contours after the terminator share tee same minimal surface intensity, since they lie in the shadow of the northern latitudes. To visualize the isoluminance contours oftbe surface of a polyhedron, imagine a series of spherical shells of linearly increasing radii, concentric about the light source.
The intersection of these shells, with one face of the polygon, creates a set of coplanar loci on the face. These loci are the isoluminance contours of the face see Fig.
The luminous intensities of the contours decrease from a maximum at the contour corresponding to the innermost spherical shell intersecting the face, to a minimum at the contour corresponding to the outmost intersecting shell.
As for the sphere, the intensity of a contour is computed by applying Lambert's law to any point on the contour.
The generalized truncus is a cylindrical solid object whose radius may vary linearly along its longitudinal axis. It represents a family of objects including all cones, cylinders, dims, rods, and right frustra of cones. When the dimensions of the generalized truncus are negligible with respect to the distance to the light source, the isoluminance contours oftbe curved sides of a truncus can be approximated by a set of quadrilaterals see Fig.
For a cylindrical truncus, these quadrilaterals are parallel to the axis of symmetry. They are distributed linearly across the cylinder from the edge of the curved side nearest the light source to the edge most distant from it. In plane geometry, the locus of all points at a given distance from a given line consists of two lines, each parallel to the given line and at the given distance from it, while in solid geometry this locus is a cylindrical surface whose radius is the given distance.
Skew Lines. In plane geometry, two lines which do not meet are parallel, while in solid geometry, two lines which do not meet need not be parallel. That is, they may not be in the same plane. Lines which are not parallel and do not meet are called skew lines. In solid geometry, as in plane geometry, the definition of parallel lines implies that the lines lie in the same plane. That is, if two lines are parallel, there is always some plane in which both lie. Thus, in the figure, l1 and l2 are parallel, as are also l1 and l3 , while l3 and l4 are skew.
In exercises 14 give the required loci for both plane and solid geometry. No proofs are required. The locus of all points six inches distant from a given point. The locus of all points ten inches distant from a given point. The locus of all points at a perpendicular distance of four inches from a given straight line. The locus of all points at a perpendicular distance of nine inches from a given straight line. Find the locus of all points one foot from a given plane.
Is this a problem in plane or in solid geometry? Find the locus of all points equidistant from two parallel lines and in the same plane with them.
Find the locus of all points equidistant from two given parallel planes. The side walls of your schoolroom meet each other in four vertical lines. Are any two of these parallel?
Are any three of them parallel? Do any three of them lie in the same plane? The side walls of your schoolroom meet the floor and the ceiling in straight lines. Which of these lines are parallel to each other? Do any of these lines lie in the same plane? Representation of Solid Figures on a Plane Surface. To represent a figure on a plane surface when at least part of the figure does not lie in that surface requires special devices.
This indicates that the lower and right-hand sides are nearer the observer than the other edges. Hence, the plane represented does not lie in the plane of the paper, but the lower part of it stands out toward the observer.
The figure ABCD represents a triangular pyramid. The triangle ACD lies behind the pyramid and is thus farther from the observer. The line AC is dotted to indicate that it is seen through the figure. If the box were open at the top, part of the line DH would be in full view and would be represented by a solid line. Representation of Lines. The following plan for representing lines is generally adhered to in this book: 1 A line of the main figure which is not obscured by any other part of the figure is represented by a solid line.
Such lines are marked in short dashes. The special axioms of solid geometry will be given as they arise in the text. Things equal to the same things are equal to each other. If equals are added to equals, the sums are equal.
If equals are subtracted from equals, the remainders are equal. If equals are multiplied by equals, the products are equal.
If equals are divided by equals, the quotients are equal. If equals are added to unequals, the sums are unequal and in the same order. If unequals are added to unequals, in the same order, then the sums are unequal and in that order. If equals are subtracted from unequals, the remainders are unequal and in the same order.
If unequals are subtracted from equals, the remainders are unequal and in the opposite order. If a is less than b and b less than c, then a is less than c. Through a point not on a given line only one straight line can be drawn parallel to that line. A straight line-segment is the shortest distance between two points. Corresponding parts of equal figures are equal. If two lines intersect, the vertical angles are equal. Two triangles are equal if two sides and the included angle of one are equal respectively to two sides and the included angle of the other.
Two triangles are equal if two angles and the included side of one are equal respectively to two angles and the included side of the other. Two triangles are equal if three sides of one are equal respectively to three sides of the other. Two points each equidistant from the extremities of a line-segment determine the perpendicular bisector of the segment. One and only one perpendicular can be drawn to a line through a point whether that point is on the line or not. The sum of all consecutive angles about a point in a plane is four right angles.
The sum of all consecutive angles about a point and on one side of a straight line is two right angles. If two adjacent angles are supplementary, their exterior sides lie in the same straight line. If in two triangles two sides of one are equal respectively to two sides of the other, but the third side of the first is greater than the third side of the second, then the included angle of the first is greater than the included angle of the second.
Two lines which are perpendicular to the same line are parallel. If a line is perpendicular to one of two parallel lines, it is perpendicular to the other also.
If two given lines are perpendicular respectively to each of two intersecting lines, then the given lines are not parallel. In a right triangle there are two acute angles. From a point in a perpendicular to a straight line, oblique segments are drawn to the line. Then, 1 If the distances cut off from the foot of the perpendicular are unequal, the oblique segments are unequal, that one being the greater which cuts off the greater distance; and 2 Conversely, if the oblique segments are unequal, the distances cut off are unequal, the greater segment cutting off the greater distance.
Two angles whose sides are perpendicular, each to each, are equal or supplementary. Two right triangles are equal if the hypotenuse and a side of one are equal respectively to the hypotenuse and a side of the other.
Two right triangles are equal if a side and an acute angle of one are equal respectively to the corresponding side and acute angle of the other.
