Overlapping Faces

Overlapping faces is an issue with real-time rendering and with CAD & CAM. It occurs when usually accidentally, a face is duplicated during the tessellation process. For example, a square polygon may find itself split into four equal triangles, each one covering half the original area. Two of the triangles are now overlapping the other two. A visual inspection would not show anything to be wrong, but an inspection of the vertexes would.

Embodiment: We React to Exposed Teeth Faster than Other Emotional Displays

EFIT-V and personalised avatars
EFit-V is one of the newest tools in the police arsenal. A replacement for sketch artists and the electronic EFit system.
