I have following data from which I need to create coon's patch.
I need to code in Matlab
Matrix of polygon vertices given below
P0u = [0,0,0; 0.2357,0.2357,0.3333; 1.1785,0.2357,0.3333; 1.4142,0,0];

P0w = [1.4142,0,0; 1.1785,0.2357,0.3333; 1.1785,1.1785,0.3333; 1.4142,1.4142,0];

P1u = [1.4142,1.4142,0; 1.1785,1.1785,0.3333; 0.2357,1.1785,0.3333; 0,1.4142,0];

P1w = [0,1.4142,0; 0.2357,1.1785,0.3333; 0.2357,0.2357,0.3333; 0,0,0];

What I have tried:

I have tried below Matlab code but it is not giving appropriate results.

What are your expected results?
thisisjinesh 7-Apr-22 4:55am    
The surface need to get created from the Bezier curve and the 4 points of the curve should still remain same which is not happing in the code which I have shared. There might be some mistake which I am not able to figure out.
Amarnath S 7-Apr-22 6:20am    
At a first glance, it looks like this line is incorrect

(((1-u(i)*(1-w(j))* A1))) - (((1-u(i)*(w(j))* C1))) - (((1-w(j)*(u(i))*D1))) - (((w(j)*(u(i))* B4)));
You have A1, C1, D1 and B4. Should they all not have the same index - All should be A1, C1, D1, B1, or all should be A4, etc.

If you have any reference to the formula for the Coons surface, check the coefficients one by one. In my reference, I have a different formula for the Coons surface, as shown in one of my articles -

Hi sir,
Thanks for your reply.
I have checked your suggestion but still it is not showing the expected results.
I have gone through your article.
Section 11 of your article "Gallery" is showing one surface named Canopy. That's how the expected result on the same curve.
But in my code of course something wrong there which I am not able to figure out still. the surface is getting generated far away from the original Bezier curve and not showing expected results.
In your article you have mentioned about bicubic coons patch, however, I was looking for bilinear coon's patch. I am sorry for inconvenience if I did not mention this earlier in the question.

I also tried equations from books. It shows the basic concept of generating 2 surfaces from 4 curves and then deducting correction surface. Books mention S = S1 + S2 -S3 where S is the final surface and S1, S2 are the surface generated from the Bezier curve and S3 is the correction surface to keep all 4 points on one plane. I tried this equation but it was not giving curved surface at all so I got confused further.
