Abstract: Subdivision is a powerful mechanism for the construction of smooth curves and surfaces. Recently we developed a new scheme that incorporates information on the tangents and normals. It is a generalization of a uniform dyadic subdivision scheme for C^1 continuous quadratic Powell-Sabin splines to arbitrary topologies. Instead of a control point there is for each vertex a control triangle that is tangent to the surface. It is a spline based scheme, but unlike other spline subdivision schemes, it is not approximating but interpolating in the tangent point. In this paper we illustrate how this scheme can be used to model piecewise smooth surfaces. In particular a control triangle that degenerates to a point leads to a sharp feature.
