Applied Shapes informally works with Uformia and other academic partners to develop the state-of-the-art in geometric modelling. Applied Shapes Research seeks to actively promote academic and research projects by the group and our partners:

The SHIVA Project

The goal of this project was to produce virtual sculpting tools for children with complex disabilities and rehabilitation patients, using 3D printing to produce real-world objects.
Project partners were: INRIA, Lille (France, main partner), Bournemouth University (UK), Victoria Education Centre (UK), Hopale Foundation (France), and Uformia (Norway, associate partner). Official project website.

The HyperFun Project

This is a high-level programming language for defining volumetric geometry. Official project website
