A new tool for computational design allows users to turn any 3-D shape into a collapsible telescoping structure. New mathematical methods capture the complex and diverse properties of such structures, which are valuable for a variety of applications in 3-D fabrication and robotics -- particularly where mechanisms must be compact in size and easily deployable.
