Abstract

In Computer Graphics a boundary representation of objects is often used to generate realistic synthetic images. For certain objects it is more suitable to use a volume representation. In this paper we investigate the visualization of knitting patterns where the details of the yarn were modeled by voxel data. The visualization and the modeling of textiles has already been investigated in depth in the computer graphics literature. However most of the publications consider woven fabrics. In the case of knitwear the topological specification of the knitting pattern allows a subdivision into basic elements. The thread course and the microstructure of the yarn are then approximated by voxel data. The periodic structure of knitting patterns allows for a compact representation and an efficient rendering. The generated images demonstrate the possible realistic simulations.
