Basic research in morphology is a relevant contribution to Industrial Design. During the last years we have been studying cutting and unfolding techniques, in particular the correspondence between cutting patterns and the different types of flexibility provided to rigid sheets through laser cutting. Different types and generative strategies have been developed and tested in their application in product design and in teaching. This paper presents three products that were originated in the knowledge produced by a research project. They are a sample of the potential of the interactions between morphology and digital technology.
