Sculpting/Fabricating Papers

Papers presenting original research are being sought in all areas of sculpting and fabricating of shapes, including (but not limited to):
  • From a creative spark to a first computer model
  • Capturing a given inspiring original in a procedural description
  • Creative design to fabrication
  • Integrating constraints (e.g., developability) into the design process
  • Integrating parametric shape modeling and sculpting/fabrication
  • Weaving, knitting, braiding and crocheting
  • CAD-CAM systems for digital design, sculpting, and fabrication
  • Rapid-prototyping techniques
  • Issues related to 3D Printing, laser cutting, CNC, and casting
  • Physical sculpting/fabrication
  • Materials technology for fabrication
  • Freeform constructability
  • Constructing with thin metals and/or papers
  • Practice of fabrication in architecture, sculpture, construction, and engineering
  • Pedagogy in sculpting/fabrication
All accepted submissions will be published in an issue of Hyperseeing (ISAMA). All submissions will be handled via the easy-chair system following a one-stage peer review cycle.
