Creating Optimized Cut-Out Sheets for Paper Models from Meshes

Straub, Raphael; Prautzsch, Hartmut

We propose an algorithm that creates optimized cut-out sheets for paper models from textured polygon meshes. Crafting time and usage of paper and glue are reduced by first computing an initial cut tree to unfold the mesh into a plane. Overlaps in the plane are then eliminated by adding new cuts. Finally, glue tabs are generated along all cuts before fitting all unfolded parts onto paper sheets using a 2D bin packing algorithm.
