Painting Gradients: Free-form Surface Design Using Shading Patterns
An interactive system for designing curved surfaces is proposed which is based on direct manipulation of a single-view shaded image of this surface. Apart from functions like carv...

A Technique for Constructing Developable Surfaces
Paper, sheet metal, and many other materials are approximately unstretchable. The surfaces obtained by bending these materials can be flattened onto a plane without stretching or ...
