Vase Design - Week 1 Strategy 1
This vase design strategy uses 4 simple creations of a circle that are based off different set axis (X,Y,Z) as well as manipulable radiuses. They are then lofted with each other to create the form seen.
This vase design strategy uses 2 set polylines that create a form. The forms are then connected via multiple changeable marker points which create connected lines with the shift list input tool and then loft to the various forms
Strategy 3 This vase design strategy has been created using many different shapes (pentagons, circle, square ect) that are stacked upon each other via axis points. The shapes are then created multiple times via the series tool and lofted to various shapes.
This vase design strategy has been created from a set polyshape which has been replicated up and allowed to fillet to various sizes
This vase design strategy has been created from a cur ve that has been created and replicated up various times. The shape has then been cross referenced with multiple series and then revolved around each other
Pavilion Design - Week 2
The dimentions of this pavilion are 20x20 and aim to respond to a give location along Meri creek. This design is created with the experimentation of creating a pavilion that is dynamiclly manipulated from a known point on a cur ve running through the pavilion outline. The form of the pavilion shape then responds to the location of that point on the cur ve and therefor changes the shape accordingly. After the script has been created for the pavilion materials can be added using Weaverbird which adds differnet surfaces depending on the tool used from the Weaverbird plugin (see images).
Data Tree Management
All Lists Extra TaskThe images shown are exporing the use of Data Tree Managment in which it is possible to create shor t, long and cross referenced lists of lines connecting from two cur ves.
Long List Cross Ref
Patterns - Week 3 Strategy 1
For this task we were asked to create a pattern using the connection points between lines and points placed on a grid surface. This involved the use of the cull tool to the list outputs. As well as this the script I have created is used from a cross reference and is dynamic in its output.
This task took a similar approach to the first however also involved the tool of a flatten tree which flattened the grids data structure onto the one grid face, which I created with a surface.
The third strategy was created using an image as the modulator for the placement of points. These points were created as circles and then flattened onto the grip surface. The placement of the points was determined by the black & white shades of the drawing, which in this case had a clear definition between the two shades.
The final strategy was created using the voronoi component which can determine the placement of points and the formation of the pattern based off a given parameter.
Patterns - Week 5 Task 1
Using the standard mathematical function, this design creates a surface from two cur ves that are connected by multiple lines. the points for the connection is determined by the mathematical expression shown.
This design is a replication of the first with the 'IF' function incorporated to give a different output.
Using the standard mathematical function to produce a patterning technique. This design uses the components of the voronoi tool which is then created into a surface.
This design is replicated from the first one (above), however it incorporates the 'IF' function in the mathematical expression to determine the output of the data. This is then created into a surface also.
