#StackBounty: #3d #mesh 3D mesh segmentation simple algorithm

Bounty: 50

I am developing the algorithm reported in this article:

Least square conformal mapping.

Here is presented an algorithm to flat a 3d mesh on the parametric space, but i don’t understand the segmentation step.

Does anyone know an alternative segmentation approach simpler than the algorithm presented in that article?

In other word, do you know a simple and efficient mesh segmentation algorithm?

The requirements are:

  • charts boundaries should be positioned in such a way that most
    of the discontinuities between the charts will be located in zones
    where they will not cause texture artifacts,

  • boundary curves corresponding to high curvature zones of the model.

Thank you for your help in advance.
