Main research

Shape modeling

The typical domains of application of shape modeling include: computer-aided design, architecture, design and rapid prototyping, mechanical engineering or medical image processing.

The usual methods or operations that can be performed include: acquisition from scanned data, conversion between representation, creation and modeling, deformation, repairing, optimization, animation, etc

The shapes studied are in general two or three dimensional, though it is possible to consider additional dimensions corresponding, for example, to the time (for time-dependent shapes) or internal attributes of the objects.

Shape modeling is dealing with the study of mathematical tools, data-structures and algorithms for the description of the shape of objects and the operations to be applied to them.

Modelling and 3D Printing of Intelligent Shapes

3D Kanji is a 3D symbol for the future society that enhances current flat characters and symbols. Using unique techniques and algorithms, characters can be transformed into completely new sophisticated, intriguing 3D shapes that still resembles the original characters. We are exploring various applications of this family of new 3D symbols, especially new methods to embed more data/knowledge into the form, modelling technologies, 3D printing technologies and identification methods.
