A hybrid volume modeling system architecture was proposed. The key architectural decision of the system design is based on the combination of volume representations by voxel data and by real continuous functions (F-rep). The concept of the volume model, hybrid voxel-function representation, system input in different forms, and possible applications are discussed.
Examples illustrating the proposed approach:
Metamorphosis between a voxel head and F-rep union of three tori.
