Abstract
In our previous paper, we proposed a technique to create a curved surface structure by fixing flat plates with bolts and nuts. By this technique, we can easily produce a solid model from a plane figure. But this method forces the flat plate be bent so that there is no guarantee that the final configuration of this model is the same as the original drawings. In this paper, we discuss the difference between drawings and assembled models in detail.
