In this paper, we propose a method to create 3D inflatable objects by laminating plastic layers. AccordionFab is a fabrication method in which the user can prototype multi-layered inflatable structures rapidly with a common laser cutter. Our key finding is that it is possible to selectively weld the two uppermost plastic sheets out of the...More
