In the case of the F-117 the constraint was modelling the radar reflections. Those things that replaced slide rules (computers) couldn't handle compound curves. By the time for the B-2 that had been sorted.

In the case of the Cybertruck, they're essentially trying to stamp out pieces made from spring steel.

Everybody is commenting — even Akkad Daily. He provides an assortment of memes (Baby Yoda showing his truck drawing to Elon in a cloud of smoke), but starts by showing his childhood favorite car from Total Recall and then ranting about the truck being ugly.
