Some time ago I wrote a blog post about geodesics and different methods how they could be computed in Houdini. Geodesic distances are great since they represent the distance, or more precisely, the shortest distance between points on a surface. 331 more words

#### GEODESICS ON MESHES

Measuring geodesic distances and the computation of paths on a mesh is widely used in computational geometry for many different applications ranging from mesh parameterization and remeshing to skinning and mesh deformation. 823 more words

#### Three ways to look at things

A familiar shadow loomed in from the hallway.

“C’mon in, Vinnie, the door’s open.”

“I brought some sandwiches, Sy.”

“Oh, thanks, Vinnie.”

“Don’t mention it. An’ I got another LIGO issue.” 704 more words
