Title: Fabrication-Aware Geometry Processing

Abstract:
The advent of commodity 3D manufacturing is increasing the demand for advanced design tools which makes the designed shapes physically realizable. In this talk, I will present a set of fabrication-aware algorithms to solve classical geometry processing problems such as mesh deformation, surface parametrization and remeshing. Applications will include the generation of bas-relief, of planar meshes and the virtual restoration of historical documents.
