The problem of solid reconstruction from contours is considered. The distance field interpolation (DFI) method gives a robust solution to this problem due to its ability to deal with any topology in any dimension. It is based on interpolation of the distance field, guided by warp function which is controlled by a set of corresponding anchor points. Some rules for defining smooth least-distorting warp function are given. The new approach is capable of blending between contours having different topological genus, and no correspondence between the geometric primitives should be established. The desired general correspondence is defined by user in terms of a relatively small number of anchor points.
