In this paper, we present a computational method for modeling D-forms. These D-forms can directly be designed using our software. We unfold designed D-forms using a commercially available software. Unfolded pieces are later cut using a laser cutter. We obtain the physical D-forms by gluing the unfolded paper pieces together. Using this method we can obtain complicated D-forms that cannot be constructed without a computer.
