MEASURED DRAWING SET Plan, Section, Elevation / Floaties Before I started to measure the floaties I decided to cut along one of the welds connecting the inflatable pockets to the end band. This enabled me to lay the entire structure flat, essentially changing it to a two-dimensional object. This made it much easier to measure. To measure the floaties I simply used a ruler. For the circular objects of the nozzle I measure across the centre and divided by 2 to find the radius. These elements were drawn with a compass. Measurements were not consistent between different floaties, so this made it difficult to create definitive measurements. Also inflation caused irregular deformations in the structure so the measurements on Section II are approximate.
SECTION I + DETAIL
ANALYTICAL SKETCHES OF MATERIAL LOGIC Essentially the floatie is a 2D object that becomes 3D with air. Air creates volume and space by expanding the gap between the surface layers. The volume is constrained by the dimensions of the surface and the amount of air pressure.
