We present a computational technique for the design of kinetic wire characters, tailored for fabrication on consumer-grade hardware.
We propose a comprehensive approach to characterizing the mechanical properties of structured sheet materials, i.e., planar rod networks whose mechanics and aesthetics are inextricably linked.
We present a method for designing and fabricating MetaSilicones—composite silicone rubbers that exhibit desired macroscopic mechanical properties.
We propose a computational tool for designing Kirchhoff-Plateau Surfaces-planar rod networks embedded in pre-stretched fabric that deploy into complex, three-dimensional shapes.
In this paper, we present an optimization-based approach for the design of cable-driven kinematic chains and trees.
We present a computational tool for designing compliant mechanisms.
We propose that the contact pressure distribution of the grasp should be used as a hand benchmark both for naturalness and comfort, and present our initial work in this direction.
We introduce a new form of low-cost 3D printer to print interactive electromechanical objects with wound in place coils.
We present an algorithm to balance 3D printed models using movable embedded masses. As input, the user provides a 3D model together with the desired suspension, standing, and immersion objectives.
We propose a method to fabricate textured 3D models using thermoforming.
