Remeshing artifacts are a fundamental problem when converting a given geometry into a triangle mesh. We propose a new remeshing technique that is sensitive to features. First, the resolution of the mesh is iteratively adapted by a global restructuring process which optimizes the connectivity. Than a particle system approach evenly distributes the vertices across the original geometry. To exactly find the features we extend the relacation procedure by an effective mechanism to attract the vertices to feature edges. The attracting force is imposed by means of a hierarchical curvature field and does not require any tresholding parameters to classify the features.
