HUDSON YARD RENOVATION
1)2 curves link to revolution P and A
2)Export from revolution and link to diamond shapes
3)Connect a color switch to Preview M
1. Use Polygon, set up three Number Sliders for Radius (R), Segment (S), Fillet Radius (Rf)
2. Use Move twice to extract the two polygons, use Unit Z to make them follow the Z direction. Add Number Slider following Unit Z
3. Pull up an Offset Curve for the three Polygons
4. Add Rotate for the bottom and top polygons
5. Use Loft Command to connect the three Polygons
6. Use Deconstructed Brep
7. Use LunchBox command to add pattern
Algorithm can be applied to any shape
The final project for the Spring 2019 term – Privacy Screens for Kids – is available now. Hit the link between the paragraphs below. The assignment asks students to design a family of laser cut privacy screens for preschoolers, and to build 3 individuals at 1:4 scale.
Previously we’ve always built at full scale in the laser cutting projects. Or at least we’ve tried too, with a hit-or-miss sort of success record. I’m hopeful that the 1:4 scale will take some of the financial sting out of the projects, minimize catastrophic structural failures, and will force students to truly design in the plural form; you all must build three screens that work, not one screen that works.
The first project of the Spring 2019 term – Product Families – can be found online here:
The final project for the Fall 2018 semester is outlined in the Google document below. This is a variation of a project the class has done a few times before – free standing laser cut privacy screens made from chipboard. This time for kids! Also – no stacked blocks, egg crates, or voronoi based assembly systems this time around…
