I was wondering if there is an algorithm that can be used to find the implicit or parametric equation of a 3D model. For instance I saw here: http://www.leweyg.co...ad/impview.html That they found the equation of a Tie Fighter.

Can this be extended to say, find the equation of any surface? If so how is it done, what would be used? In this case, it seems he just used a series of preprocessor's but there must be a simpler way?

Can this be extended to say.. Find the equation of any surface? If so how is it done, in this case, it seems he just used a series of preprocessor's but there must be a simpler way?

I was just wondering I have seen that implicit surfaces for example, and I was wondering if there is an algorithm that can be used to find the implicit or parametric equation of a 3D model.For instance I saw here: http://www.leweyg.com/download/impview.html That they found the equation of a Tie Fighter.
