This paper presents a method for three-dimensional surface ¯attening, which can be ef®ciently used in three-dimensional computer aided garment design. First, a facet model is used to present a complex surface. Then, a spring±mass model based on energy function is used to ¯atten the 3D mesh surfaces into 2D patterns. The surface elastic deformation energy(More)
Recent research reports describe efforts to create automated assembly sequence planners, which will help design and manufacturing engineers analyze increasingly complex and customized products and the dynamic conditions found in modern computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) systems. Early assembly planners that use graph searching techniques can generally(More)
Kaposi sarcoma (KS) and primary effusion lymphoma (PEL) are two pathologies associated with KS herpes virus (KSHV/HHV-8) infection. KSHV genome contains several oncogenes, among which, the viral G-protein-coupled receptor (vGPCR open reading frame 74) has emerged as a major factor in KS pathogenicity. Indeed, vGPCR is a constitutively active receptor, whose(More)
Virtual reality (VR) has been used both to simulate situations that are too dangerous to practice in real life and as a tool to help children learn. This study was conducted as part of a larger more comprehensive long-term research project which aims to combine the two techniques and demonstrate a novel application of the result, using immersive VR to help(More)
This study presents an introduction to mass customization in the product life cycle—the goal of mass customization, mass customization configurations, and new customer integration techniques, modular design techniques, flexible manufacturing systems (FMSs), and supply chain management methods. The study reviews three selected books and twenty-one selected(More)
