Challenges on the Construction of Topological Interlocking Configurations on Solids and Meshes
Author(s)Andres Bejarano, Christoph Hoffmann

Traditional topological interlocking configurations are built on planar surfaces surrounded by support structure. Despite the multiple applications of this concept, there haven’t been significant improvements in terms of geometry and piece generation. Our approach consists on extending the idea to 3D meshes. Current results indicate it is possible to apply topological interlocking in three dimensions; however, additional considerations are required for obtaining reasonable interlocking configurations.
