This paper addresses the problem of generating a volumetric shape to approximate an arbitrary cloud of points. The volumetric shape is an aggregate of blobbies, computed using a genetic algorithm. The choice of this model is motivated by the simplicity and the popularity of this primitive. The algorithm is tested on clouds of points representing a bunny and a cat.
