We introduce a new mesh representation for arbitrary surfaces that integrates different levels of detail into the final representation. It is produced after remeshing an existing model and omits storing connectivity information. Switching between resolutions can be instantly accomplished without extra computation. This representation is generated by chartifying initial the mesh, parametrizing and re-meshing each chart using a regular grid of control points in a multilevel approach. Finally, the model becomes watertight by hierarchically stitching each chart's boundary points and normals. Copyright 2005 ACM.
