Product Families – Bracelets

The product family shears same design space in Grasshopper. All members come from the same definition. I was able to create multiple variations moving  sliders.

Deffinition

The project  aims to represent the frozen surfaces.How the surface changes the shape according to level of cold.  First shape I tried to make simple and created the gradient in between five family members. Starting from first it curves slowly and also grows as a shape. The structure inside the shape, introduces the ornament of the molecule in different density. I tried to create different chemical conditions fitting the shape of the bracelet.
Bracelet shape was created in Grasshopper,connected to Mesh settings, I can control density using the sliders..All the member of the family is printed by the 3D printer.

Final Product Families

The Product Families Assignment first got us thinking about a definition that was able to create multiple variations with only the moving of sliders. When we were asked to think about a possible object to create for this, I wanted to make sure to keep it simple, yet elegant. Keeping this in mind, I thought of the simplest forms that we are used to and concluded with parallelograms. Making vessels with varying number of points began to drive the definition, along with a few other factors.

FINAL PRESENTATION

Family of Planters 3.0

Family of Planters is a parametrically designed line of planters.

Every plant has different sun or shading needs. People usually use half-shades and screens to protect outdoor plants as well as window pots. These elements are not always well designed, so I am proposing a system where the shade is incorporated to the planter. These products will accommodate 5 different shade requirements for various plant species.

Here you can watch the video of the grasshopper file definition and take a look at the presentation. Enjoy!
