Kerf bending: ruled double curved surfaces manufacturing


Capone, Mara; Lanzara, Emanuela;


Knowledge of geometric properties of surfaces is crucial for resolution of many manufacturing problems. Developability is an important feature of a surface that allows its manufacture from a flat "strip" of a "flexible" and "non-deformable" material. Digital fabrication technologies and parametric design tools, based on knowledge of geometry, are changing designer way to think. Our research in the field of non-developable surfaces fabrication move from paneling to "kerfing". This technique allows to transform a rigid material in a flexible one. The main problem to solve is how to cut the flat shape to obtain the design surface.
