summary 
When the shape of an object has been numerically defined, it is sometimes necessary to distort it to improve either its technical performance or its aesthetic appearance. After briefly recalling the major properties of space curves and surfaces defined by Bernstein polynomials, it is shown how the result can be automatically obtained by distorting an auxiliary triparametric set of references. The principle of an approximate method for highorder curves and surfaces is explained
