We show that a simple modification of the power crust algorithm for surface reconstruction produces correct
outputs in presence of noise. This is proved using a fairly realistic noise model. Our theoretical results are related
to the problem of computing a stable subset of the medial axis. We demostrate the effectiveness of our algorithm
with a number of experimental results.

1. Introduction
Surface reconstruction is an important problem in geometric
modeling. It has received a lot of attention in the computer
graphics community in recent years because of the develop-
ment of laser scanner technology and its wide applications
in areas such as reverse engineering, product design, medi-
cal appliance design and archeology, among others.
