Coroplast Kammback: joining or bending?

Now that I have a sheet of coroplast to fool around with, I'm wondering how to actually construct the Kammback. Should I make it out of three pieces (top + 2 sides), or should I make it out of one piece? In the first case, I'll have to find a way to join the pieces: screws, glue, ??? In the second case, I have no idea how to safely bend a 5mm thick piece of stiff coroplast. Should I heat it? On the outside, or inside? What happens when it cools? Will it try to straighten out again, will the bend be strong?

Any help, please?

Thanks,
--Adam
