Abstract: This paper presents a new approach to the construction of a surface from a stack of contour slices. Unlike most existing methods, this new approach handles ambiguous conditions consistently without employing an algorithm to establish a correspondence between vertices on one contour and those on the next. It is easy to implement and fast to compute, requiring only basic geometric properties, namely closedness and simplicity, to be available with contour data. The advantages of this new approach have also been demonstrated with solutions to a few classical problems from the literature and some practical problems in medical imaging. It can also be applied to geographical surveying and keyframe animations.
