What does it take to build fast simulators for cloth and thin shells—in particular to do so with code that is simple to implement, debug, and maintain? Our group's belief is that simple geometric observations help to address all these goals. I will survey my students' recent work on the discrete differential geometry of thin, flexible surfaces, and focus on a couple simple geometric observations that lead to efficient and simple models for bending, stretching, and artistic control of cloth and thin shells.
