Origami Science: origami-like techniques used in advanced tecnologies.

Some projects use bona fide origami folding techniques in the their work. Twisted Shell. X=2*cos(u)*sin(v*2)*2 Y=2*sin(v*2)*sin(u)*2 Z=(cos(v*2.5)+cos(v)*3)+u U=2.5 V=-pi,+pi’ One method to deal with intersecting mesh.

MIT Researchers: make big things out of small, interlocking 3D printed composite components. For the most part the size of an object that’s 3D printed can’t be larger than the build volume of the printer; the only exceptions are printers that can print onto existing objects, so a printed object could be repositioned in a way that allows the printer to continue printing onto it.

MIT Researchers: make big things out of small, interlocking 3D printed composite components

For this reason, size constraints are a limiting factor with the entire industry of 3D printing. The common sense solution for bigger parts is to build bigger printers, and some have gone that route, but common sense will take us only so far. Absolutely stunning cocoon lamp created with multi-material 3D printer. Jan.23, 2012 This stunning Cocoon Lamp is inspired by Neri Oxman's "the beast", cocoon is also from the nature - a cocoon is a shell which protects the insect for their metamorphosis.

It is created by Patric Günther at the Voxel Studio and 3d printed by Objet Technologies. With the polyjet technologies from Objet Connex multi-material 3D printer, it is possible to print the Cocoon Lamp with more than just one material. The Cocoon Lamp consists of 3 materials: 1. 2. 3. The Cocoon Lamp can be turned, laid or hung up in different positions and appear different effect.

Top 10 3D Model Databases: Best Places to Download 3D Models

There are tons of website out there that offer (both free and premium) 3D models to download. We took a look at 10 of the best and most popular 3D model databases and compared them for price, quality, selection, and printability. 1. Artist prints – Gifpop! Custom Gif Cards for Everyone.

G-C Narrative: Particulars- The G-C models were a study of plane manipulating the sphere.

Digital Craft and Architectural Geometry: The BAC Summer 2012 » G1: Plane/Sphere Hybrid

The act of slicing the sphere leaves sphere in pieces. The manipulation of pieces was the exploration. Hive 1000; Architecture & The City. Habitat Manhattan/ A Housing for 1000 artists Delancey St., Lower Manhattan, NY A live-work environment for 1000 artists that explores a particular strain of visionary (And now sometimes realized) urbanism, involving spherical geometries; this project contributes to a wider understanding of the sphere as geometry. ​

Hive 1000; Architecture & The City

Pointed to one extreme where subdivisions and surfaces are coincident. The other extreme pointed to subdivisions privileging the structure qualities of minimal surface geometry. My Interest falls in between these two spectrums. ​ This project looks at the implications of producing a controlled transformation of a given surface template and creates continuity between organizational states of the program(Live-Work-Show) in relation to the logic of sphere as a cell and how that can create new ideas of Utopian cities and housing as architecture project. ​ Ateliers d'Art de France. 3d torus vormplus.

Whittling. All the pieces on this page are each whittled from one piece of wood using only a selection of knives and scalpels. Here we have nine balls in seperate cages on the top and the same on the bottom, with three revolving cages inside each other, with a ball in the centre, for the middle pillar. It stands 5.5 inches high and is 2.5 inches square, carved in lime. The fan is a real challenge for any whittler. Carved from one piece and then split into 32 blades 1mm thick when wet.Just make sure that the timber has a strong grain to assist splitting after carving. This fan is 8.5 inches across the diameter. This ball cage is whittled from lime and is 6 inches high by 2.5 inches in diameter. Original Artwork by North American Artists. Industrial Design, Research and Product Development.

Future Representations Jake Brockwell. My design project is based around the uncertainty and the imperfection surrounding mass. The weight ‘Le Grand K’ in which all weight is derived (hidden in a vault outside Paris, and only ventures out of its air tight glass box every forty years) has began to lose mass against its prototypes. Two very different perspectives on solving this issue, the first, another artifact, a silicon ball where every atom is being measured to find the precise amount of atoms needed to weigh one kilogram. The other a fundamental constant. Using watt balance, the Avogadro science team are attempting to levitate the original Le Grand K to find the amount of watt balance needed to levitate a Kilo.

The issue of Le Grand K losing mass is a major priority, as ANY PHYSICAL CHANGE TO IT ALTERS THE MASS OF EVERYTHING WITH THE COSMOS. The design takes the idea of two pavilions working both side by side and also very much against each other. The Institute of Weights and Measure. Aisato design.

Math Craft Inspiration of the Week: The Curve-Crease Sculptures of Erik Demaine. Erik Demaine is a Professor of Electronic Engineering and Comp Sci at MI, but he is also an origami folder who has had work displayed at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.

He makes some beautiful models and intricate puzzles, but in my opinion the really inspirational work is the curved creased models. In Erik's own words describing the above models: "Each piece in this series connects together multiple circular pieces of paper (between two and three full circles) to make a large circular ramp of total turning angle much larger than 360° (between 720° and 1080°). Each sculpture is also turned a different amount before joining the sliced circles into one big (topological) circle. " These pieces are strange and beautiful, but they are also quite reproducible. I will see if I can put together a "how to" for a simple variation. H also makes amazingly complex and organic looking models like the following: Three Waves Meeting.
