Glass and plywood are commonly used materials in architectural and industrial design. However, these materials impose serious constraints on the creative freedom of a designer, as the space of these constructions is the space of polyhedral meshes (PM), namely, meshes with planar faces, which is known to be very limiting. In addition to the inherent difficulty in generating such meshes, manipulating them while preserving planarity presents additional challenges. Herein, we discuss two approaches to editing polyhedral meshes. The first approach is based on an extremely fast optimization and the second on linear subspace exploration. We show that our approaches are viable in practice and surpass the state-of-the-art.
