David Rutten replied to Gaurav Goel's discussion not able to generate planar surfaces from polylines
"Obviously you cannot make them planar without deforming them, so the question really is what parts of the structure are allowed to deform? Do you want to move a single point on each quad to make it planar? So you want to move two opposing points? Do…"

Evolutionary Principles applied to Problem Solving

This blog post is a rough approximation of the lecture I gave at the AAG10 conference in Vienna on September 21st 2010. Naturally it will be quite a different experience as the medium is quite different, but it my hope the basic premise of the lecture remains intact.
