in my editor I need to add a new feature to create a bridge between two mesh points. I try to do it with a commercial software
and this is the result:

In the commercial software I specified two points on the two side of the mesh (P1, P2) and after a bridge is created.

I think the software use curvature information or do a sort of interpolation.
Have you some idea where to start, what are the parameters needed to do interpolation?

Thanks in advance.

Most commercial software packages (Polyworks, Geomagics, etc.) use the term "Hole fill", and you'll probably have much better luck finding your answer on Google, using that term.

Here's a PDF that I found when I used the search term polygon hole fill algorithm in Google.

Maybe I assumed wrong. Are you talking about creating a polygon "bridge" (as I assumed), or are you just looking to create a curve-on-surface "bridge"?
