Scaffolding a Skeleton
Athina Panotopoulou, Elissa Ross, Kathrin Welker, Evelyne Hubert and Géraldine Morin
The goal is to construct a quadrilateral mesh around a one-dimensional skeleton that is as
coarse as possible, the “scaffold”. We provide a constructive algorithm to derive a quad-mesh scaffold with topologically regular crosssections, and no T-junctions.

Printone: Interactive Resonance Simulation for Free-form Print-wind Instrument Design
Nobuyuki Umetani, Athina Panotopoulou, Ryan Schmidt, Emily Whiting
Our interface provides interactive sound simulation feedback as the user edits,
allowing exploration of freeform original wind instrument designs, which can be fabricated using a 3D printer.

Perceptual models of preference in 3D printing direction
Xiaoting Zhang, Xinyi Le, Athina Panotopoulou, Emily Whiting, Charlie C. L. Whang
A method to find printing directions that avoid placing supports in perceptually significant regions.
Our model for preference in 3D printing direction is formulated as a combination of metrics including area of support,
visual saliency, preferred viewpoint and smoothness preservation.
