Abstract: We present a mesh filtering method for surfaces extracted from binary volume data which guarantees a smooth and correct representation of the original binary sampled surface, even if the original volume data is inaccessible or unknown. This method reduces the typical block and staircase artifacts but adheres to the underlying binary volume data yielding an accurate and smooth representation. The proposed method is closest to the technique of Constrained Elastic Surface Nets (CESN). CESN is a specialized surface extraction method with a subsequent iterative smoothing process, which uses the binary input data as a set of constraints. In contrast to CESN, our method processes surface meshes extracted by means of Marching Cubes and does not require the binary volume. It acts directly and solely on the surface mesh and is thus feasible even for surface meshes of inaccessible or unknown volume data. This is possible by reconstructing information concerning the binary volume from artifacts in the extracted mesh and applying a relaxation method constrained to the reconstructed information.
