Abstract We introduce Plushie, an interactive system that allows nonprofes- sional users to design their own original plush toys. To design a plush toy, one needs to construct an appropriate two-dimensional (2D) pattern. However, it is difficult for non-professional users to appropriately design a 2D pattern. Some recent systems auto- matically generate a 2D pattern for a given three-dimensional (3D) model, but constructing a 3D model is itself a challenge. Further- more, an arbitrary 3D model cannot necessarily be realized as a real plush toy, and the final sewn result can be very different from the original 3D model. We avoid this mismatch by constructing appro- priate 2D patterns and applying simple physical simulation to it on the fly during 3D modeling. In this way, the model on the screen is always a good approximation of the final sewn result, which makes the design process much more efficient. We use a sketching inter- face for 3D modeling and also provide various editing operations tailored for plush toy design. Internally, the system constructs a 2D cloth pattern in such a way that the simulation result matches the user’s input stroke. Our goal is to show that relatively simple algo- rithms can provide fast, satisfactory results to the user whereas the pursuit of optimal layout and simulation accuracy lies outside this paper’s scope. We successfully demonstrated that non-professionalpaper’s scope....
