Source code information


Both required libraries (armadillo and NLopt) can be found via apt-get. In the CMakeLists, In had to change line 6 from find_package(nlopt REQUIRED) to find_package(NLopt REQUIRED). In file vipss/src/surfacer/ImplicitedSurfacing.cpp, I added #include <chrono>, and then the compilation went fine.

Misc. comments

A script is provided to replicate the figures in the paper, however it complains that some input are missing (eg ../data/noise_kitten/kitten_h0.04/ I got a "core dump" for all the examples I tested (using the command lines provided by the authors).
