3D surface mesh browser using superquadric-shaped, metal tools as part of an interaction model for visualizing relationships between structures that are often layered and occlude one another; the system would allow users to fluidly perform cuts, peels, constrained explosions, etc. to easily break apart a model for the purpose of understanding

Project site: eternallite.github.io/Aperio

Aperio is a 3D surface mesh browser using slidable superquadric-shaped, metal tools that can be stretched and planted onto surfaces as a way of marking up areas to be illustratively manipulated (transformed or deformed in a manner for the purpose of illustration and understanding).

The marked areas can be cut, peeled or the tools themselves can act as explosion paths. Superquadrics are defined by both implicit and parametric equations and are easily deformable (bendable, twistable, etc.) making them ideal for creating flexible shapes and paths.

The goal is to develop an intuitive and immediate exploration system using slidable tools (in the form of superquadrics) that lends itself to visual affordance (i.e. users can easily and intuitively combine tools such that they can perform various actions). It is primarily created for users who have little to no prior 3D modeling experience and just want to break apart a complicated system for the goal of better understanding relationships between parts of the 3D system.

It can be used by medical professionals on anatomical data or for visualizing any other geometric models. These pages document the use of the application.
