Motivated by the papercraft toys developed in [Mitani and Suzuki 2004], we created an algorithm suitable for use with fabric. In contrast to paper, fabric, for the most part, can be slightly stretched, allowing a less restrictive approach when defining the sewing patterns. As part of our method, we introduce a new metric of developability for mesh surfaces and show how to use this metric to segment surfaces into (nearly) developable patches. A surface patch is developable if it may be… CONTINUE READING
