This study concerns an advanced NURBS surface reconstruction method, which is based on the NURBS surface model fitting to the unstructured point cloud measured from an arbitrary complex shape. The concept of generating a simple triangular mesh model was introduced to generate a quadrilateral mesh model well-representing the topological characteristics of point cloud. The NURBS surface reconstruction processes required the use of the various methodologies such as QEM algorithm, merging scheme of pair-wise triangular mesh, creation algorithm of $G^1$ continuous tensor product NURBS surface patch, and so on. The effectiveness and reliability of the proposed NURBS surface reconstruction method were validated through the simulation results for the geometrically and topologically complex shapes.
