Hi
Great site ; many years ago when engineers claimed that there was no such thing as develobed surfaces from free-form mesh entities ( tradisional lapstrake woodenboats ), I had our local scoutch to build a small _real_ row boat ; in less than a week they had the hull assembled from full-scale drawings of the planking and building jig, and they ahd a _real_ boat that tought them how computers work, how you can "flatten" a surface with a few small applications in a way you can "se" and understand, ----- acturly they learned just as much about computers as how they "grew" from seing a real true result in a quality that surprised them.
Distribution of forces are a job for engineers, but even the Romans knew how to build bridges ; a bit oversized but when a method offer four times the strength and each member are allowed maximum support by all other members you can even be pleased with a bridge even the weight are 10 times needed ; the Romans were anyway but their simplest trick was acturly what "carried" it all, one simple idear that made it possible to build "whatever" .
