Marching Cubes

Marching cubes is a Classic algorithm for isosurface extraction. It utilizes efficient table lookups to extract a 2D isosurface from 3D volumetric data. The isosurface is represented in terms of a collection of triangles, which are easily rendered by graphics hardware. Although marching cubes is a rather dated algorithm, it demonstrates much of the concepts behind modern rendering approaches. Read More ›
