Patterns of geodesic lines are key when dealing with timber support elements and wooden panels in freeform architecture. This paper presents a systematic treatment of single and multiple geodesic patterns and webs, and shows how to perform segmentation of a surface into parts that are nicely panelizable by geodesic patterns.
K-set Tilable Surface
A quad-mesh optimization problem, called "K-set tilable surface": given an input quad-based surface, the method generates a set of K quads whose instances can produce a tiled surface that approximates the input surface.
Paneling Architectural Freeform Surfaces
A method for creation of architectural free-form panelings using double-curved panels.
Triangle Surfaces With Discrete Equivalence Classes
A technique that takes a triangulated surface as input and outputs a surface with the same topology but altered geometry such that each polygon falls into a set of discrete equivalence classes.
