An interesting question is whether a machine can assist humans in being creative and inspire a user during the creation of 3D models or a shape in general. One possible means to achieve this is through a design gallery which presents a variety of computed suggestive designs from which the user can pick the ones he likes the best. The ensuing challenge is how to come up with intriguing suggestions which inspire creativity, rather than banal suggestions which stall the design process. In my talk I will discuss about the notion of creative modeling, synthesis of inspiring examples, the analysis of a set, and show a number of recent works that step towards this end.
