Design of plane developments of arbitrary curved surfaces. Application in CAD (1994-1997)

The aim of this research project is to develop methods for the automatic generation of plane patterns of doubly curved surfaces.

Two methods have been developed during this project. The first one takes into consideration the elasticity of the surface material and the second one takes into account only the geometry of the doubly curved surface. Both methods require a proper triangulation of the original surface.
