Abstract

Early in the development of ∥-coords, the representation of surfaces was attempted by simply plotting the surface’s points as polygonal lines. Except for very special surfaces(i.e.,spheres,ellipsoids),thisturnedouttobeevenmorehopelessthanwhat happened with line-curves. The next improvement was the surface representation by the envelopeof these polygonal lines.
