Abstract: A numerical analysis is presented for determining the shape of strips, which, when assembled, form a hyperbolic surface. The boundary lines of the strips are geodesics, which coincide with cables of constant tension in the surface. The procedure is iterative and is easily programmed. Two numerical examples are given.
