Placement of interior node points is a crucial step in the generation of quality meshes in sweeping algorithms. Two new algorithms were devised for node point placement and implemented in Sweep Tool, the first based on the use of linear transformations between bounding node loops and the second based on smoothing. Examples are given that demonstrate the effectiveness of these algorithms
