Abstract: A precise and time effective method for generating stellar surfaces is a crucial step in creating the light curves of single and binary star systems. In the case of rotationally deformed components of single star systems and tidally deformed components of close binaries, spherical symmetry is no longer usable for generating stellar surfaces, which increases complexity of the task. However, exploitation of axial and planar symmetries of such stellar components proved to be a powerful tool in reducing overall computational time necessary to generate a stellar surface. We present one of the possible approaches to this issue that includes usage of symmetry vectors that enabled us to effectively perform the surface discretization and calculation of surface parameters such as the local effective temperature or gravity acceleration.
