Relaxation + Remeshing with Plankton and Kangaroo

When relaxing meshes to produce minimal surfaces, generating a high quality initial mesh can be problematic and tedious. Uneven meshing can cause the relaxation to fail or give incorrect results, especially when the relaxed geometry changes significantly from the input, causing the triangle quality to degrade even further.
By continuously updating the connectivity of the mesh, as shown here, to maintain even sized and nearly equilateral triangles, even very large changes to the boundaries become possible, and the surface still minimizes mean curvature. This allows dynamic exploration of sculptural forms.
