Hmm, I love the smell of burnt chipboard in the morning

Hey guys!

Since my last update I had a few set backs. I am still having trouble notching and translating it. I can get it in 3D but the moment I lay flat to 2D it dissapears. Laying flat in 2D, and applying the same definition I did in 3D, does not work. So there is some mistranslation between the 3D world and 2D world in terms of my grasshopper definition.

But on the other hand, you can totally take the extra hours (which was shorter than figuring it out) to manually do it in ACAD! yay! Here are the results of my first prototype.

Laser Cutting in the A.M. with Donna! Apparently Undergrads use it too and the red laser is broken.

You can see the brightness scale already on the wall: Much more brighter on the right side towards the bookshelf and less bright by my head! Yay! (around 10 am)

I think moving forward I need more louvers. The shorter vertical ones, and perhaps thickening it, and hang it lower. It’s way too close to the ceiling now.

That’s all folks!
