I've often wondered if there is a cnc way of forming complex shapes from sheet metal blanks; turns out there is, at least in its early developmental stage.

I wonder if it can be used for rib forming along with fuselage panel forming..
Small machine for ribs Large one as seen in video for fuse.
Should eliminate a lot of form blocks and dies..
Anyone with good arduino skills?

The idea is really not new, just taken to a little higher level..
