Mock-up 4 Preperation

leave a comment »

A nested sheet almost ready for fabrication, still without the proper fenestration.  (1) 4′ x 8′ aluminum sheet @ 1/16″ thickness.

-Nesting obviously becomes a major restriction, a possible direction for developing the connection efficiency!

Unrolled panels & folding connection…

Full Scale Mock-up v.2

with one comment

A few images from the second full scale mock-up…

Conclusions:

-1/8″ Aluminum may be excessive in weight for panel + tab connection

-A perforated score @ 1/8″ aluminum is very difficult to bend.  Either the panel must be 1/16″ thickness or use a channel notch, which may only allow for 90 degree folds.

-Folded connection is very clumsy looking, may go for a triangular shape as well as cut away most of the back face of the connection b/c the first fold restrict almost all of the force

The code has been updated to:

-nest all text & panels

-Control the orientation of the connection, either inside or outside

The 1/8″ scale model will use a “tab” connection as the scale is too small to demonstrate the accurate connection.  The tab connection also utilizes the possibility of folding each panel with 1/8″ scale materials.  Two holes are provided in the tab connection to account for a standard staple to replace the full scale bolts.  The tab restricts almost all axis of rotation and should provide an estimate in the overall structural efficiency of the form.

-Tab connections

-Fenestration

Surface Generation 2:22:08

Two images of the progress of surface generation.  The surface now provides occupation and user interaction on a variety of levels while responding to site conditions.  The fenestration and connections still need to be resolved.
