A flattenable mesh surface is a polygonal mesh surface that can be unfolded into a planar patch without stretching any polygon. This paper presents a new method for computing a slightly stretched flattenable mesh surface M from a piecewise-linear surface patch P∈R3, where the shape approximation error between M and P is minimized and the strain of stretching on M is controlled. Prior approaches result in either a flattenable surface that could be quite different from the input shape or a…
