The woven fabric with curved surfaces is a kind of single layer woven fabrics, which was produced to smoothly fit three-dimensional solids. The warp or weft of the winding fabric bend were normally made with different lengths, which may result in shear deformation in many cases and accordingly twisting the structure of the fabric after fitted onto the solid. In order to solve the problem mentioned above, a theoretical formula was used to calculate the optimal intervals of the pick-spacing and an improved structure thus was developed in this study.
