MODULE | CLUSTER
The SECOND step you will be constructing a cluster surface with your module. You will need to replicate your module a minimum of 50 times and a maximum of 70 times. Once this is done you will be constructing a highly varied aggregated cluster surface. Begin to arrange and compose your modules connecting them according to their relationships of geometry (do not for example connect a triangle to a hex shape).
Use a strategy by creating a curve formation or a surface geometry in which to guide the creation and form of the cluster. This can be a technique of surface creation that you learn in class, such as a rail revolve. You may create a cluster system made up of a number of modules (5-10) then copy and re-aggregate. panel surface
Remember scale here do not add any people to your output. Checkpoint Here The THIRD step you will be creating a well articulated free form surface, or variation of a articulated surface such as a DUSTIN WHITE _ course 395 _ instructor _ #3 torus, which you will apply your module to. You will work on TRUNCATED TETRAHEDRON - In geometry, the truncated tetrahedron is an Archimedean solid. It has 4 regular hexagonal 4 regular triangular by manipulating yourfaces, model changing itâ€™s scale, orientation, faces, 12 vertices and 18 edges deleting faces, creating a pattern in its pieces or connecting multiple modules as a mini cluster. You will have to construct a surface that is controlled through multiple editing process, similar to what you have done with previous assignments (point editing, rebuilding, point controlling). Once the module is applied further editing may be needed, via manual control of the modules. This may be done by editing the module faces, deleting faces, deleting modules, adding modules, etc. formation solid demormation Limits Your final surface should also be controlled, just like you have done in previous assignments. Considerations Build upon your Points and Curves assignments, use this to help you control and shape your surfaces. Experiment with the software, find ways that make your process easier and faster. Modeling is all about speed and precision. Analyze the type of Platonic Solid you have. Understand the language and geometry in which it is made. How do you create the most highly varied surfaces with a limited amount of modules?
Layout 11x17 Printed drawings showing all steps of the process. A narrative statement describing the process of the assignment. For the cluster you will have an exported line drawing with proper line weights and render overlay. The same applies for the module surface. Additional information will be posted on the blog.
