We present an intuitive system, inTouch, for interactively editing and painting a polygonal mesh using a force-feedback device. An artist or a designer can use this system to create and refine a three-dimensional multi-resolution polygonal mesh. The appearance can be further enhanced by directly painting onto its surface. The system allows users to naturally create complex forms and patterns aided not only by visual feedback but also by their sense of touch. Copyright © 2001 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
