The manufacturing of curved parts is laborious. Special molds are needed to define the curvature during the forming and joining process – a factor that is time consuming and costly, especially in individual production and small series. Zipshape is a new universal method that makes it possible to fabricate single curved panels from any plain material without molds. An element consists of two individually slotted panels that interlock only when bent to the predefined curvature.
