    This paper presents a new method for generating object mesh models composed of hexahedra. The proposed method is based on a self-organizing deformable model (SDM) which is a deformable surface model guided by competitive learning and an energy minimization approach. Extending the SDM, the proposed method generates a hexahedral mesh model of a target object by fitting a cuboid composed of rectangular voxels to the object. Moreover, the shape of each hexahedron in the model is corrected by dividing the hexahedron into sub-hexahedra and moving the nodes of the hexahedron. From our experimental results, the proposed method obtains the hexahedral mesh model which consists of many regular hexahedra while recovering the shape of the object.
