Abstract: One of the reasons which results into erroneous triangulated model is the formation of holes during mesh generation. The formation of holes in triangulated models is primarily due to missing data while scanning the object. These holes in the model will result in joining of the triangulated facets in the wrong direction. This further makes large and complicated holes in the model. Most of the work presented in literature identify and fill these holes after the completion of triangulated model which is a time consuming and computationally extensive task. In the present work an algorithm for identifying and filling the hole is proposed which will work along with mesh growing process. The algorithm has been applied to create a triangulated model of a phone receiver. Further, the patch created after filling the hole preserves the shape of original mesh and it blends with the neighboring mesh in a smoother way.
