A GPU-based approach for scientific illustrations

Scientific illustrations are used for centuries in several scientific domains to communicate an abstract theory and are still created manually. In this article we present a GPU-based illustration pipeline with which such illustrations can be created and rendered in an interactive process. This is achieved by combining current non-photorealistic-rendering algorithms with a manual abstraction mechanism and a layer-system to combine multiple techniques. The pipeline can be executed completely on the GPU.
