Unrolled 2D panelling component

Labelling and unrolling ribs

Problems faced: Triangulate faces command for the ribs component did not translate well when unrolled into 2D → went back and deleted the surfaces and unrolled 583593 ANGELA MOK

Labelling with 'TOP' and piece number

Also printed this section off at officeworks on A1 to test 1:1 prototype on plain paper This was the curves of my model (largest concern) and I wanted to test how it would translate into a physical model

Paper prototype scale 1:1 Focussing on the curves As expected, it was quite difficult to manipulate with paper Have to be extremely careful not to rip/ tear tabs

Prototype 2 Printed fablab model Leaving opening (strip shown in blue in labels) to allow for flexibility during construction

Experimenting with shadowing and possible placements of LED's

Test 1 of putting the ribs and panelling together This turned out unsuccessful as I could not attach vertical strips of ribs after inserting the 2d panelling component inside the rings of the ribs

583593 ANGELA MOK


Decided to construct the two components separately but leaving a gap running along the top of the rib rings to insert 2D panelling component later

The two components placed sideby-side Use of masking tape to hold undried glue in place Ribs are made of the thicker mount board but is still fragile due to scoring
