The Interwoven Systems Project – final prototype

1 03 2010

A part of the form of the Interwoven Systems Project (done in the Hyperbody Studio / TU Delft) was chosen for final prototyping in 1:25 scale. The aim of the prototype was to test structural and formal aspects of the project, as well as the accuracy of the  generative procedure, which combines both scripting and digital fabrication techniques.
All the structural beams and joints were laser cut out of 2mm plywood. However facade elements were made following completely different process. First of all we did three dimensional molds  by 3-axis CNC milling, and then based on them we vacuum formed all the cups.

The diagram above shows which part of the final form of the project was chosen for the prototyping. Moreover it visualizes and describes all the elements of the coming prototype. All the pictures below present the final prototype with vacuum formed facade elements.

Because of the fact that we were able to vacuum form just a couple of plastic facade parts, for the rest of the model we fabricated elements by laser cutting 1mm white cardboard.
