Here are a few pictures of my final printed ring-holders and how they look when used for its intended purpose.
Triangle printed in Metallic Plastic
Circle printed in Strong and Flexible black plastic
Prism printed in Matte Bronze Steel
Cylinder printed in Stainless Steel
Cone printed in Polished Metallic Plastic
I made some few adjustment to the Circle ring holder design, to better accommodate the ring size. As you can see in the image the overall design is now a little thinner then the original.
I have been trying to find places that allow you to print your 3D models in unique materials. I think Shapeways is the best option so far, but I also found a company named i.materialise. They don´t print in as many materials as Shapeways, BUT they have a new trial project including printed wood. I thought it was super cool so I wanted to share. The prices are about the same as Shapeways. The wood appears to be more of a particleboard consistency, but still super cool in my opinion. Check out the link below:
I went to the Grasshopper Plugin part 2 workshop today and learned some new tools, which I thought were very interesting. He talked about the Heron plugin, which I think can help us in further studio projects and it shows some of the amazing things Grasshopper and Rhino can do. I attached a video below, which explains the plugin better. It pretty much shows you how to bring google maps into Rhino/grasshopper, which will allow you to take the data and convert it into a 3D model of your site. I thought it was pretty awesome and helpful, so I wanted to share it.
Does anyone know the final presentation requirements, meaning exactly what we need to include in the presentation on tuesday?
I can’t find the Lunchbox plugin in the class folder, did it disappear? If so is there any way for me to download it to the school computers, as it is a vital part in my project?
I am having problems figuring out how to make a hexagon pattern on a cone shape, any suggestions? While looking for answers I came across this website and thought it might help someone https://wiki.mcneel.com/_media/labs/panelingtools4grasshopperprimer.pdf
Looking forward to learn some new and fun things in this class.
