Source code and research papers about our recent Power Crust algorithm for three-dimensional surface
reconstruction are now available. 

This algorithm always outputs the boundary of a three-dimensional solid, so it tends to be pretty robust in
practice (as well at correct in a theoretical sense). 

It also outputs an estimate of the medial axis of the object, which can be simplified to include only features
which are stable with respect to noise. 

Please enjoy!
