Star Unfolding of Boxes (Multimedia Exposition)

LIPIcs-SoCG-2018-76.pdf (0.8 MB)


Given a convex polyhedron, the star unfolding of its surface is obtained by cutting along the shortest paths from a fixed source point to each of its vertices. We present an interactive application that visualizes the star unfolding of a box, such that its dimensions and source point locations can be continuously toggled by the user.
