The main scope of industrial prototyping consists in creating a tangible representation of an arbitrary complex object. This activity usually starts with the design of a digital 3D model, often using Computer Aided Design tools. The ability to manipulate, analyse and optimize a digital shape is fundamental. This can be addressed either interactively, by providing semi-assisted intuitive instruments, or automatically. A new generation of geometry processing algorithms has been designed to meet the requirements of specific applicative domains. Thanks to new capabilities, significant innovations have been achieved in industrial design, architecture and manufacturing.

In this talk I'll show recent results we achieved in three research areas where geometry processing has proven to be particularly effective: remeshing for CAD and entertainment industries, digital fabrication, and architectural geometry.
