Box Cutter: Atlas Refinement for Efficient Packing via Void Elimination

  • Max Limper, Fraunhofer IGD / TU Darmstadt
  • Nicholas Vining, University of British Columbia, Canada
  • Alle Sheffer, University of British Columbia, Canada

We improve packing efficiency of parameterized 2D chart atlases via cutting-and-repacking operations, producing provably bijective packed atlases that are on average 68 percent more efficient than the frequently non-bijective originals.

3D Printing Spatially Varying Color and Translucency

  • Alan Brunton, Can Ates Arikan, and Tejas Madan Tanksale, Fraunhofer IGD
  • Philipp Urban, Fraunhofer IGD and Norwegian University of Science and Technology NTNU

We present an efficient and scalable pipeline for 3D printing full-colored objects with spatially varying translucency from practical and accessible input data.
