Spatial Sketch is a three-dimensional (3D) sketch application that bridges between physical movement and the fabrication of objects in the real world via cut planar materials. This paper explores the rationale and details behind the development of the Spatial Sketch application, and presents our observations from user testing and a hands-on lamp shade design workshop. Finally we reflect upon the relevance of embodied forms of human computer interaction for use in digital fabrication. 
SKETCHING IN VIRTUAL REALITY FOR RAPID AND SITUATED IDEA GENERATION
TLDR
A sketch-based 3D modeling system using Virtual Reality (VR) with a Head Mounted Display (HMD) to have a possibility for rapid ideation and for spatially conceptualizing ideas.
Towards Interactive Fabrication of 3 D Prints with FabAR — Modifying and Creating 3 D Models through Gestures
FabAR enables end-users to modify and create 3D models based on gestural input and augmented reality allowing the interactive fabrication of 3D prints directly inside a 3D printer. We outline the
SPATA: Spatio-Tangible Tools for Fabrication-Aware Design
TLDR
SPATA is the digital adaptation of two spatial measurement tools, that explores their closer integration into virtual design environments, and adapt two of the traditional measurement tools: calipers and protractors.
NatCut: an interactive tangible editor for physical object fabrication
TLDR
A novel tabletop-based tangible editor, called NatCut, that allows the quick and easy design of physical enclosures for interactive prototypes, and discusses the results of a user study in which the approach was tested.
Interactive fabrication: new interfaces for digital fabrication
TLDR
This work maps out the problem space of real-time control fordigital fabrication devices, and examines where alternative interfaces for digital fabrication are relevant, and reflects upon the potential of interactive fabrication.
Situated modeling: a shape-stamping interface with tangible primitives
TLDR
A shape-stamping interface where users can model with tangible 3D primitive shapes that allow them to use the real-world environment and other existing objects as a tangible guide during 3D modeling.
Sketching in 3 D Towards a fluid space for mind and body
TLDR
This thesis investigates and proposes new digital methods of 3-dimensional sketching that take advantage of motion detecting and computer-vision technology that is widely available today and provides a possible foundation for novel computer-aided sketching application that takes advantages of both the physical and virtual worlds.
Proto-TAI++: Exploring Perceptually Consistent Creation of Planar Shape Assemblies Through Multimodal Tangible Interactions
TLDR
This work describes a three-stage user evaluation with Proto-TAI++, a multi-modal system that allows for pen-based drawing of planar shapes and their subsequent mid-air assembly using a hand-held planar shaped proxy to study the effectiveness of the planar proxy as a tangible 3D modality.
RoCuModel: an iterative tangible modeling system
TLDR
RoCuModel provides a new way for people to design and create a rotationally symmetric 3D model and is the first step towards eliminating the gap between specialists and non-specialist users in personal fabrication.

Surface drawing: creating organic 3D shapes with the hand and tangible tools
TLDR
This work evaluated Surface Drawing through collaboration with artists and designers, exhibition before hundreds of users, an extensive exploration of the medium, and an informal user study, finding response was especially positive from users with an artistic background.
3-Draw: a tool for designing 3D shapes
A fundamentally new type of CAD system for designing shape that is intuitive, easy to use, and powerful is presented. It is based on a paradigm that can be described as designing directly in 3-D. By
Surface drawing
TLDR
The Cookie Cutter algorithm, a novel incremental construction method for triangulated meshes, allows the user to freely grow, join, and erase surfaces based on hand motions, and presents results created by artists and designers exploring problems in industrial design, character design, and fine art.
A survey of design issues in spatial input
TLDR
A survey of design issues for developing effective free-space three-dimensional (3D) user interfaces, including the use of spatial references, relative gesture, two-handed interaction, multisensory feedback, physical constraints, and head tracking is presented.
CavePainting: a fully immersive 3D artistic medium and interactive experience
TLDR
CavePainting’s 3D brush strokes, color pickers, artwork viewing mode, and interface are described and several works of art created using the system are presented along with feedback from artists.
Easy doesn’t do it: skill and expression in tangible aesthetics
TLDR
It is argued that the history of human–product interaction design has exhibited an increasing neglect of the intrinsic importance of movement, resulting in technologies that continue to place demands on the authors' cognitive abilities, and deny us the opportunity of building bodily skill.
ErgoDesk: A Framework for Two- and Three-Dimensional Interaction at the ActiveDesk
TLDR
A detailed discussion of the ErgoDesk framework’s major features including: the layout of physical props; the transitions between 2D and 3D interactions; the use of gestural and spoken input; and the transformation model for converting between real-world and virtual environment coordinates.
How bodies matter: five themes for interaction design
TLDR
This paper draws on theories of embodiment - from psychology, sociology, and philosophy - synthesizing five themes particularly salient for interaction design: thinking through doing, performance, visibility, risk, and thick practice.
Tight cocone: a water-tight surface reconstructor
TLDR
A simple algorithm called Tight Cocone is described that works on an initial mesh generated by a popular surface reconstruction algorithm and fills up all holes to output a water-tight surface and produces a triangulated surface interpolating the input sample points.
Snakes: Active contour models
TLDR
This work uses snakes for interactive interpretation, in which user-imposed constraint forces guide the snake near features of interest, and uses scale-space continuation to enlarge the capture region surrounding a feature.
