3D printing : Group 18

“When we began to design our component for the vertical installation, we initially experimented with a variation of shapes, some were space filling, while others were more design oriented. As we began to refine our conceptual model, we realized that it was essential to take into account the structural support of the central pipe, as well as the connection points. While the top and bottom points could easily be connected using a series of straight lines in Rhino, through the use of Grasshopper the model was able to develop into a more complex shape. The original lines became piped curves along a lofted mesh that allowed for a more dynamic representation of the basic connections. These curves intersect each other throughout the model to ensure more structural stability. We also added a few more pipes in the middle and the top of the model to allow for additional support.”

The initial idea evolved from metal studs on jackets representing the undying age of Rock n’ Roll. The square pyramid unit was altered into an off-centered triangular pyramid to achieve more permutations of arrangement. The units are equilateral triangles with grove for wide end flanges (located at center of each sides). This allows for random arrangement of the blocks without any set rules. As demonstrated through the images,
the triangles can be slided over one another with the help of slide-in dowels freely in any permutation. Also, the joinery helps to support the unit from all side, also allowing for omission of blocks to create openings in the wall The idea was to demonstrate use of a very simple unit that can be repeated to get various altering patterns. This projects the wall made of random complex geometry and eliminates the existence of single units. Thus, giving a continuous pattern of prisms.
