Yongquan Lu and Erik D. Demaine, “A system for generating paper sliceform artwork”, Symmetry: Culture and Science, volume 26, number 2, 2015, pages 203–215.

Sliceform paper art is an art form where long strips of paper are cut, folded and slotted together to form intricate geometric configurations. We present a system that streamlines the design process for such artwork, which are conventionally highly time-consuming to assemble. Main features of the system include a powerful user interface for specification of custom pattern motifs and an algorithm that traces patterns in a polygonal tile-based geometric configuration to compute strip dimensions. We exhibit some representative results generated by our system.
