Most exteriors used in performing surface modeling of large buildings are linked or pieced by quadric surface. This surface, which is non-expansible, will cause wrinkling when stamped and used as a flat sheet metal of a metal curtain wall. These wrinklings are not distributed effectively because of the curvature asymmetry of surface modeling. Hence, this study proposes a horizontal recursive algorithm of optimized wrinkling that will enable effective distribution of wrinklings when the surface is stamped to form a shape, thereby satisfying the requirements of precision in surface stamping.
