- Sweeping algorithms have become very mature and can create a semi-structured mesh on a large set of solids. However, these algorithms require that all linking surfaces be mappable or submappable. This restriction excludes solids with imprints or protrusions on the linking surfaces. The grafting algorithm allows these solids to be swept. It then locally modifies the position and connectivity of the nodes on the linking surfaces to align with the graft surfaces. Once a high-quality surface mesh is formed on the graft surface, it is swept along the branch creating a 2 3/4-D mesh.
