M.C. Escher's artwork has inspired and arguably even informed computer science, geometric and shape modeling. Even today much of his work poses challenges to conventional digital shape modeling systems. The authors choose several interesting problems presented by Escher's graphic artworks and using a novel approach based on implicit surfaces and their extension (Function Representation) produce 2D, 2.5D and 3D computer models. Based on these models, several physical objects or sculptures have been crafted using digital fabrication processes.
