Fabrication | 3D Modeling

Challenge

Design an LED-lit installation that could be rapidly built with a few builders and a CNC. Make all parts modular and easy to install on site.

Process

1. Model basic forms in Rhino.

2. Break down into parts cut fmor 3/4" plywood and 1/4" plexiglass.

3. Consult with builders on stability and assembly.

4. Share drawing set and watch talented hands bring the piece to life.

What I learned

My brief collaboration with the STP was really stimulating as fabricator and designer. Everyday I worked right next to a crew of painters, sculptors, welders, and builders. I was fascinated by their daily work and it was easy to bounce ideas off these talented folks and incorporate their feedback directly into my drawings.
