Abstract: Paper sliceform (or lattice-style pop-up) is an art form that uses two groups of parallel paper patches slotted together to make intriguing foldable structures. Automatic designing and manufacturing of paper sliceforms still remain challenges to the existing computational models. We propose novel geometric formulations of valid sliceform designs that are guaranteed to be stable, flat-foldable, as well as physically manufacturable and assemblable. Based on a set of sufficient construction conditions, we also present an automatic algorithm for generating valid sliceform designs that closely depict given 3D solid models. By approximating the input models using a set of generalized cylinders, our method drastically reduces the search space for stable and flat-foldable sliceforms and has polynomial time complexity. Our method has been demonstrated on a number of example models, and the output designs have been successfully made into real paper sliceforms.
