If anyone knows how to automate the final step of actually making the plot, please let me know or post your own answer.

@djp: Given the example of paper cutouts, I assume that the deformation is meant to be isometric. See also: dForm

comment How to enhance a fuzzy image
A disk is a better model for defocus blur than a Gaussian function. Set r = 6; k = DiskMatrix[r]/Total[DiskMatrix[r], Infinity]; and try ImageDeconvolve[image, k, Method -> "RichardsonLucy"] or ImageDeconvolve[image, k, Method -> {"TotalVariation", "NoiseModel" -> "Laplacian"}]. The results aren't super fantastic, but they're something.

comment How to enhance a fuzzy image
Blurring is a form of convolution. To undo it, what you want is deconvolution, i.e. ImageDeconvolve. However, your image also has a lot of noise, which makes deconvolution very hard.

comment How can I make a pretzel shape using bezier curves?
You'll have better luck if you make your control polygon have three-fold symmetry.

comment How to generate mesh and calculate volume of 3d object?
Sorry, maybe there's something I'm missing, but why can't you just keep using your NIntegrate[ρ^2 Sin[θ], ...] method?

comment Can someone explain this snippet: (#[#] &)[#[#][#] &]
Rather than the Y combinator, it looks to me like a variant of the standard example of a lambda calculus expression with no normal form: $(\lambda x.xx)(\lambda x.xx)$. This one has three $x$s in the second term.

In the interest of teaching a man how to fish: Check out the documentation for Graph, under Examples > Scope > Styling. The first example there demonstrates VertexStyle and EdgeStyle.

comment Is Mathematica `ContourPlot` function really so efficient?
You could do something like Table[{x, y} /. NSolve[f[x, y] == 0 && 0 <= y <= 10, y, Reals], {x, 0, 10, 0.1}]. The difference in speed is because NSolve tries to get all roots with machine-precision accuracy, about $10^{-16}$, whereas ContourPlot is content with much lower accuracy and possibly missing some roots.

comment Define a function with variables linked implicitly
@fanshenry: Sorry, I took "Eventually I would like to draw a graph" to mean that drawing the graph was your end goal. To define the function itself, you can try using Solve or NSolve or use Michael E2's method. When I have some more time, I'll edit my answer to explain the use of MeshFunctions, but in the meantime you could look at the documentation.

comment How to plot feasible objective space of a Generic Multiobjective Optimization problem?
Can you give the definition of "feasible design space of objective functions" for those of us not intimately familiar with multiobjective optimization terminology?
