Daniel Yu Task 1

Hey @DanielYu

Nice work with the fabrication app, good idea to use the Rhino layers as well as grasshopper parameters to control what is visible in the model. You could even combine the Rhino layer visibility with a Geometry pipeline in grasshopper to effectively use layer visibility as inputs to your parametric model.

What you would probably find with fabricating this is that it is very difficult to create these consistent, slight variations in radii for the arcs / curves in the design and so the resulting design language of the physical object would probably be quite different to the digital model. You might consider:

  1. As a general rule introducing more variation in the parts and the joints is going to help conceal small accidental variations during fabrication. The trick is to introduce this variation without simply introducing noise / disorder.
  2. Allowing the curving vertical elements to join (bundling, weaving, etc) could help stiffen the structure and also conceal small variations.

In both of these cases Frei Otto’s experiments with self organizing woolen threads are a good reference.

I also noticed that your model appears to be placed under the QR code. This would suggest that the QR code has been scaled during printing - you might want to check the paper size option in the FologramQR command to suit whatever is in your printer.
