Deutsch: Form / Español: Forma / Italiano: Forma 
The shape of an object located in some space is a geometrical description of the part of that space occupied by the object, as determined by its external boundary - abstracting from location and orientation in space, size, and other properties such as colour, content, and material composition.

In an industrial or manufacturing context, "shape" refers to the form or configuration of an object or material. It can refer to the external form of an object, such as its size and proportions, as well as its internal structure.

For example, in the metalworking industry, shape refers to the form and configuration of metal parts and components, such as the shape of a metal stamping, a extruded profile or a machine part. In the plastic industry, shape refers to the form and configuration of plastic products and parts, such as a plastic bottle, a plastic tube or a plastic molding.

In the field of construction, shape refers to the form and configuration of building and structures, such as the shape of a skyscraper or a bridge.

In the field of aeronautics, shape refers to the form and configuration of aircraft and spacecraft, such as the shape of an airplane wing or a rocket.

In the field of design, shape refers to the form and configuration of products, such as the shape of a car, a watch or a mobile phone.

It's worth noting that shape is an important aspect of industrial and manufacturing processes, and it plays a critical role in determining the functionality, performance, and aesthetics of products and structures. The use of advanced technologies, such as computer-aided design (CAD) and 3D printing, allows for precise control and manipulation of shape in industrial processes, and enables industries to create new and innovative products and structures.
