CurveSkel Software for computing curve skeletons of 3D shapes

Tamal K DeyJian Sun


CurveSkel software can compute the one dimensional curve skeleton of a three dimensional shape.  It is based on a new mathematical definition of the curve skeletons using medial geodesic function. This function is defined on the medial axis which captures the geodesic distances on the boundary of the shape. The curve skeleton is defined as the singularity of this function. The details are  described in the  paper given below.
