    MoveableMaker: Facilitating the Design, Generation, and Assembly of Moveable Papercraft

    In this work, we explore moveables, i.e., interactive papercraft that harness user interaction to generate visual effects.

    First, we present a survey of children’s books that captured the state of the art of moveables.

    The results of this survey were synthesized into a moveable taxonomy and informed MoveableMaker, a new tool to assist users in designing, generating, and assembling moveable papercraft.

    MoveableMaker supports the creation and customization of a number of moveable effects and employs moveable-specific features including animated tooltips, automatic instruction generation, constraint-based rendering, techniques to reduce material waste, and so on.

    To understand how MoveableMaker encourages creativity and enhances the workflow when creating moveables, a series of exploratory workshops were conducted.

    The results of these explorations, including the content participants created and their impressions, are discussed, along with avenues for future research involving moveables.
