Building Surfaces from Curve Sketches

In recent years 3D sketching has received considerable attention and a number of powerful tools (such as ILoveSketch) have been developed which can interpret strokes of a design artist as three-dimensional curves. Using these tools, the artist can create, in roughly the same time it takes him/her to draw a single 2D sketch, a loose 3D wireframe model of his/her intended object in the form of a collection of curves in space. In this project, we intend to intend to extract actual 3D surfaces from such collections of space curves, thus turning the end result into a true 3D model. Such a technology can significantly accelerate prototyping in industrial design.
