Computationally Designed Eclairs

The goal of the project is to design shapes for eclairs, by CNC cutting the baking sheets. The computational pipeline is based on the paper “Rapid deployment of curved surfaces via programmable auxetics” by Mina Konaković-Luković et al.

The pipeline:

Input: 3D surface

After conformal flattening and linkage optimization

Fabrication: laser-cut baking material

After baking: puff pastry filled cream shaped and
textured by the baking mold
