Abstract : In industrial surface generation, it is important to consider surfaces with minimal areas for two main reasons: these surfaces require less material than non-minimal surfaces, and they are cheaper to manufacture. Based on a prototype, a so-called masterpiece, the final product is created using small deformations to adapt a surface to the desired shape. We present a linear deformation technique preserving the total curvature of the masterpiece. In particular, we derive sufficient conditions for these linear deformations to be total curvature preserving when applied to the masterpiece. It is useful to preserve total curvature of a surface in order to minimise the amount of material needed, and to minimise bending energy.
