Within shaping, a cylinder was squished into a sphere by multiplying trigonometric functions. In ascending, a curve was plotted according to a diagonal trajectory. In the case of bending, an entire shape is swept along a curve. This is more like ascending than the squishing transformation portrayed in shaping. The geometry of the initial shape is not squished and deformed, but instead is plotted to follow a path other than a straight line. Adding a trigonometric function to a cylinder will not distort the circle that composes it. Rather, the circle, instead of extruding vertically in a straight line, will follow a curve and bend.
