Haptic and visual feedback are important for assessing objects' quality and affordance. One of the benefits of additive manufacturing is that it enables the creation of objects with personalized tactile and visual properties. This personalization is realized by the ability to deposit functionally graded materials at microscopic resolution. However, faithfully reproducing real-world objects on a...

3D printing technology is a powerful tool for manufacturing complex shapes with high-quality textures. Gloss, next to color and shape, is one of the most salient visual aspects of an object. Unfortunately, printing a wide range of spatially-varying gloss properties using state-of-the-art 3D printers is challenging as it relies on geometrical modifications to achieve the desired appearance. A...
