NURBS model of a trunk
NURBS model of a trunk


Code (.cpp and .h) for a NURBS-based formulation of a continuum trunk produces a real-time, 3-D realization of the trunk which specifies the shape of trunk as a bent cylinder, rather than approximating it as a large number of rigid-link segments. This code (.cpp and .h) depends on the Coin library, a platform-independent implementation of OpenInventor. See the Coin website for instruction on compiling and linking again their libraries.
