Assignment 6 | Power Copies


First Try

Creating the framework

Put panels on per cell grid

Creating diagonal distance as reference

draw openings on the mean plan


Use fill surface to cover the cell grid and go passing through the passing point


Produce the cutting hole as 'aperture'


Make powercopies of that standard cells and apply for the rest of the grid cells






Finished 'Torch Flower'

Assignment 5 | Folding

Assignment 5 | Folding






First Try
I tried to fold the planar pieces into 3D dynamic cells by turning the two edges of the two half-sized panels in a vertical direction, and, also, flipping the large panel in a surface perpendicular to the driving plan. However, this model doesn't work, which questioned me what is another way to build digital model to mimic this folding process.

(the below is the failed trial)




Second Try

half-sized panel/ panel A

panel B

Folding Cells
This time I tried to build the folding model and drive the process by tracing the tracks of the moving vertexes of two panel B.
(see below, by making certain vertexes of panel B and panel A on the same planar surface and freeing the 'peak' of the cell, the two moving vertexes on the base surface are driven symmetrically along with the arch trail according to a 'control angel(85 degrees in the pic)'. )

Assignment 4 | Assembly

Assembly


This week's focus is on the assembly of different components of geometries and the various rotation and unpredictable results of the assembly. 



Component 1


Component 2


Component 3




The assembly of three types of components follow the rules of "3-1-2-3-2".
And the results are as blow:

  And by changing the angles the whole assembly behave complex unpredictable rotations through every elemental level.
