A subdivision depth computation technique for Catmull-Clark subdivision surfaces (CCSS’s) is presented. The subdivision depth computation technique also includes distance evaluation techniques for CCSS patches with their control meshes. The distance and the subdivision depth computation techniques provide the long-needed precision/error control tools in subdivision surface trimming, finite element mesh generation, Boolean operations, and surface tessellation for rendering processes.
