Our article Orientable Dense Cyclic Infill for Anisotropic Appearance Fabrication (with Cédric Zanni, Jonàs Martínez, Pierre-Alexandre Hugron, and Sylvain Lefebvre) got accepted to SIGGRAPH 2023 (ACM Transactions on Graphics).

We propose to create 3D-printed flat surfaces with controlled, spatially varying, anisotropic appearances similar to brushed metal using standard fused filament fabrication printers. We achieved high-quality visual results using a novel, robust, efficient, oriented cycle generator. We empirically show that the deposition and roughness anisotropy directions are the same.
