Module Three: Fabrication - Week 9 Catherine Mei Min Woo 562729 Semester 2/2012 Group 13


Finalized nesting layout Death To the left is the optimzed nesting layout sent for printing at the Fab Lab terior dimentsions were accurate as advised by Michelle in the previous tutorial


Assembly & Complications Death Wing 1: The exterior (Left) was constructed prior joining it to the interior (below). Approaching the construction of this particular section using this method was

The thickness of the paper compensated by being able to support itself/its own wieght and doesn’t collapse.


Assembly & Complications Death Wing 1: too small (all were measured to the max of 0.5cm) to be secured due to the Craft tape was used as a replacement to the UHU as a temporary adhesive for to completele construction of the overall model.


Assembly & Complications Death Wing 1:

aesthetic cohesiveness or leave it as it is. inconsistencies along the paper as seen below.


Assembly & Complications Death Connections 1: The connections branching out from the wings were easier to maneuver in terms of interracting with the tabs and getting them to attach to one another due to the larger space allowed to work with. enough to retain the intended curvature.


Assembly & Complications Death Connections 2 & 3: -

particularly for the edges.


Assembly & Complications Death Another issue that came about during the building process was the fabrication i) Inaccurate fabrication during the digitizing process. ii) Inaccurate labeling during the nesting process.


Assembly & Complications Death Connecting sections: The wings and connections were joined using UHU glue as the predominant Craft tape was used as a replacement to the UHU as a temporary adhesive for to completele construction of the overall model. Bulldog clips were also used


Completed model Death Version one of the exterior of the model completed as seen in the picture on the left. Transportation of a model this scale will be complicated as the only modes of transportation available are public transport and a small car. The solution would be to reduce the scale of the model. of paneling should also be reduced to make construction easier. As for the cone strctures (eg.wings 1 and constructed into whole cones to prevent odd and uneven joints occuring. The tabs will also be enlarged for the sake of convenience as an increase to about 1cm will not interfere with the path mounting of the LEDs.


Paneling issues Death Paneling choice 1: Experimentation with the paneling showed although the manual construction of the intended paneling is possirequires a working base strcture for the paneling to be applied to. The solution would be to change the digitized strcture of the model and go from there.


Paneling issues Death Paneling choice 2: eling showed although the manual construction of the intended paneling models requires a working base strcture for the paneling to be applied to. both digitally and manually and hence this design will adhere to this paneling design instead. The solution would be to change the digitized strcture of the model and go from there.


Death explores the relationship of digital evolution over recent years with the creative process. Both adcess. This week expanded on the ideas suggested by previous lectures and readings in relation to expanding design capabilities alongside technological development and how technology is an

models because they transcend from our learning process into industrial application in the future. (cont.)


Death or even other modeling softwares in the future. The lectures ended on a rather bittersweet note as the virtual lectures are the most interesting lectures of all the courses I am currently enrolled in and they have assisted me greatly in motivating me to work towards familiarizing myself with the achieve such ease.
