I was wondering if any progress has been made on 3d fairing of data sets.
If one starts with ship coordinates in F-I-S+ format, the rounding transforms continuous curves into steps and zig-zags. Rounding causes most pronounced errors at the bow where things are closer together where even differences of less than 1/16" create noticeable defects. Yet, fairing in the vertical direction often causes unfairing in the horizontal direction (and visa versa).
I am wondering if there is yet a good solution for fairing in 3D.
