"Panelling" is a process where an arbitary geometric shape is converted into a basic construction kit element.
The end result of panelling process is a single panel of fabric, which can be efficiently stored as a list of corner angles and edge lengths, accompanied by their corresponding seam types. A panel is not an universal shape, but an implementation of a shape in a known material. The material influences various properties, such as laser kerf compensation, engraving depth and seam tightness.
