Mesh Refinement via Delaunay Triangulation Sides

We decided that the 32 soccer ball centers was a good start, but that we'd like to be able to refine the mesh. One option is to draw the Delaunay triangulation, and add the midpoints of the lines. This produces a sequence of meshes of 32, 122, 482, .. points, adding 3*N-6 points to the current set of N points for a total of 4**K*(N-2)+2.

Files you may copy include:

- refine_del.xyz, the coordinates of the Delaunay once-refined mesh.
- refine_del.iv, an Inventor image of the points, with the added points in green.
- refine_del2.xyz, the coordinates of the Delaunay twice-refined mesh.
- refine_del2.iv, an Inventor image of the points, with stage 0 points in red, stage 1 points in green and stage 2 points in yellow.
