This is the video of the paper that is recently accepted Shape Modeling International Conference and it will be presented in Geometry Summit in Berlin. The Paper will be published in Computer & Graphics journal, which is one of the leading journals in Computer Graphics field. In this particular work, we demonstrate that quad-edge mesh data structure can efficiently be used to construct large shapes. We have developed a system to unfold any polygonal mesh based on quad-edge structure. Using our system, any shape can be constructed by using laser-cut developable panels. This approach is particularly suitable to construct complicated sculptural and architectural shapes from anisotropic materials that can only be bent in one direction.
