Piecewise Surface Flattening for Non-Distorted Texture Mapping, ,
Chakib Bennis, Jean-Marc Vezien and Gerard Iglesias and Andre
Gagalowicz, Siggraph '91. Works on 3D parametric surfaces (e.g.,
splines). Uses geodesics.
Pick part of an iso-parameter line. "Grow" the line, then
"fatten" the line until some distortion criteria is met, then start
Use chord-length parameterization along the curve.
Use chord-length and cross angle to grow sideways.
