The research at GRIS concentrates on the automation and generalization of parametric templates to be able to use this highly flexible implicit representation for broader applications. Parametric Templates can be used to generate numerous new objects from a single parametrized template. Also, parts of the templates can be reused and recombined. Therefore parametric templates overcome the native problems of explicit representations like triangle meshes.
Parametric Templates explained
Parametric Templates are used to generate 3D objects. The templates include a set of parameters defining the main characteristics of an object. Dependent on the parameter values differently shaped 3D objects are generated by the template.
