This paper introduces a method for the automatic conversion of the 3D mesh models into a set of the 2D patterns for producing physical copy-models. We consider the models that can be segmented into the near-developable parts. Each part is regenerated into the 2D patterns by decomposing it into a set of triangle strips and mapping them onto the 2D print plane. Mapping strips are done in two steps: 1) mapping onto the fixed plane in 3D; 2) mapping the flattened strips onto a print plane. The… 
Superimposition of Rigid Origami Patterns
The aim of the research is to manipulate the foldable objects such as a sheet of paper in the simulation environment in the relation with understanding the robot design instead of creating the real robotic prototypes.
Holographic Application of Endemic Origami Animals from the Galápagos Islands that Self-Folds
A mobile application that explains the fauna of the Galapagos Islands through a 3D holographic visualization technique that reinforces the learning process and enriches the experience of the user and validated the competency indicators and the students attitude generated through this educational convergence model.


Papercraft Models using Generalized Cylinders
An algorithm for approximating a 2-manifold 3D mesh by a set of developable surfaces represented as a strip of triangles not necessarily taken from the original mesh is introduced.
From virtual to physical reality with paper folding
Least squares conformal maps for automatic texture atlas generation
This paper introduces a new quasi-conformal parameterization method, based on a least-squares approximation of the Cauchy-Riemann equations, which can parameterize large charts with complex borders, and introduces segmentation methods to decompose the model into charts with natural shapes, and a new packing algorithm to gather them in texture space.
Mesh Segmentation Using the Platonic Solids
A novel application of the platonic solids to find direction vectors for grouping mesh elements of the 3D surface meshes elements with normals that correspond to the direction vectors.
Boundary smoothing for mesh segmentation
To achieve further smoothing, some triangles are split by adding points and edges based on virtual triangle subdivision and the graph cut approach to achieve significant further straightening of boundaries with simple straightest geodesics.
Paper craft models from meshes
An algorithm for segmenting a mesh into developable approximations that are developable, easy to cut, and can be glued together is introduced.
Printed Patterns for Enhanced Shape Perception of Papercraft Models
It is found that models with printed patterns are perceived to represent the intended shape more accurately, and, further, that the type of printed pattern has an impact on the perceived shape.
An Adaptable Surface Parameterization Method
An energy functional is proposed, that quantifies angle and global area deformations simultaneously, while the relative importance between angle and area preservation can be controlled by the user through a parameter.
Simple and efficient algorithm for part decomposition of 3-D triangulated models based on curvature analysis
A novel, curvature analysis-based decomposition of 3-D models represented by triangle meshes into functional parts instead of surfaces and large mesh handling capability with low computational cost and easy implementation are presented.
Implementing As-Rigid-As-Possible Shape Manipulation and Surface Flattening
This article provides a description of an "as-rigid-as-possible shape manipulation" implementation that is clearer and easier to understand than the original and shows that the same algorithm can be used for surface flattening with quality and performance comparable to popular flattening methods.
