Elastic Textures for Additive Fabrication

Introducing elastic textures: parametric, tileable, cubic patterns that achieve a broad range of isotropic elastic material properties on a single-material 3D printer. This paper demonstrates that these patterns enable fabrication of both objects filled with user-specified, varying material properties and objects that achieve specified target-deformation behaviors.

Microstructures to Control Elasticity in 3D Printing

This paper proposes a method for 3D printing of deformable objects with spatially varying elasticity. Using a single printer material, the method efficiently designs an assembly of small-scale microstructures that have the effect of a softer material at the object scale, using a precomputed database of structures.

By-Example Synthesis of Structurally Sound Patterns

This paper proposes a novel approach to synthesized intricate carved patterns on the surface of objects, from a 2D example. The scheme jointly optimizes for the appearance and the structural soundness of the pattern, enabling casual users to add complex details onto 3D printed models.

Design and Fabrication of Flexible Rod Meshes

This computational tool for fabrication-oriented design of flexible rod meshes automatically computes a rod mesh that, once manufactured, closely matches a set of input poses under the same boundary conditions.
