A method to triangulate the medial axis  is modified. In the new
method the coping surfaces of a thin-wall object are used for insidedness but ignored
for footpoints, yielding the mid-surface, not the medial axis. Three distinct
contour-followers are employed. After a brief, manual tagging of the coping surfaces,
the method is automatic. It computes a triangulation to arbitrary precision
and appears robust for complex, thin-wall objects.
