Project 3: Serial Forms

Project 3 is about learning to construct a form by dividing it up into serial planes. This form was created using the line tool to create a profile. Then, the revolve command was implemented to make a solid form (seen below on the left).

The section command broke up the mass into individual pieces (below on the right). A mathematical script was provided to calculate and add appropriate connections to the pieces allowing them to be fit together like puzzle pieces.

Another script was applied after the piece was finished that placed each piece side-by-side. The pieces were then arranged in a grid 18x32 (the length of the laser bed) and color coded for the laser printer.
