PROBLEM DESCRIPTION What’s Unfolding? Cut surface and unfold to a single non-overlapping piece in the plane. Edge unfolding : Cut only along edges General unfolding: Cut through face too

ORIGINS Does every convex polyhedron have an edge-unfolding to a simple, non-overlapping polygon? [Shephard, 1975] [Albrecht Dürer, 1425]

STEEPEST EDGE UNFOLDING Choose a cut tree which is the steepest edge in vertex v in polyhedron. Heuristically, we cut “the most upward edge”

STEEPEST EDGES We have direction unit vector c, and if c faces top of the pages. As follow the Steepest edge cutting rules, we have steepest edges drawn in bold like next figure.

UNFOLDING RULES

2 LAYER OVERLAP Suppose P′ is an unfolding of a convex polyhedron. Let e1, e2, and e3 be incident edges on the boundary of P′, where e1 and e2 have common vertex v and e2 and e3 have common vertex w. Further suppose that |e3| = |e2|. Let φ be the exterior angle at v, and let θ be the exterior angle at w. If 1. θ + 2φ < π, and 2. |e1| ≥ |e2|*sin θ/sin(π−θ−φ) then P′ will contain a 2-local overlap

COUNTER EXAMPLES TO UNFOLDING ALGORITHMS Counter example to Steepest Edge cutting algorithm
