In this volume experts from university and industry are presenting new technologies for solving industrial problems as well as important and practicable impulses for new research. The following topics are treated: solid modelling; geometry processing; feature modelling; product modelling; surfaces over arbitrary topologies; blending methods; scattered data algorithms; smooting and fairing algorithms. NURBS21 articles are giving a state-of-the-art survey of the relevant problems and issues in the rapidly growing area of geometric modelling.
