Abstract: Image processing, marching cubes algorithm, surface reconstruction

Keywords: A Marching Cubes algorithm modification is presented in this work. This proposal is used to make from surface image discretized on volumetric pixels, called voxels, a three-dimensional representation from a flat image is raised. To achieve this effect, each component is connected continuously (without gaps) regardless of the values of the image surface. The aim is to achieve this effect, optimizing computational resources. The ambiguous elimination cases as well as the identification of non-trivial cases are among the main features attended. Once identified, the modelling process is optimized, seeking congruence with the edges of the volume, applying techniques that allow connecting the edges adjacent to the corners, generating the triangulation of the cube, and introducing a new set of edge equivalence classes and cube faces. The obtained results allow to observe the effective performance of the implemented modification.
