Surface That Has a Net

Surface That Has a Net

Surface that can be flattened out by unfolding it into simpler surfaces.

A surface is said to have a net when a pattern of it can be produced on a flat and flexible material such as paper, carton, fabric, etc., such that the corresponding solid can be rebuilt through folding.



  • A sphere, a hemisphere, a paraboloid of revolution and a hyperboloid of revolution are surfaces that do not have nets.
