A "ribbon" is a surface traced out by sweeping a constant width line segment along a spatial curve. We consider the problem of planning multiple disjoint and collision-free ribbons of finite thickness along curvature and torsion constrained curves in 3D space. This problem is motivated by the need to route multiple smooth channels through a 3D printed structure for a healthcare application and is relevant to other applications such as defining cooling channels inside turbine blades, routingdoi:10.1007/978-3-319-16595-0_31 fatcat:swahso4co5gy7mljd7qybhinvm
