We take an active interest in minimal waste digital fabrication methods. It’s a good challenge to create efficient templates for subtractive manufacturing, and successful results allow us to create more prototypes with limited stock material. This post focuses on digital models for kerf bending, a traditional method for creating flexible forms out of rigid materials.
Shortly after we posted our 2010 Holiday Card video, we had many people ask us for the patterns and a how-to manual for making spherical, “glowflake”-style shapes. Fortunately, making a “Glowflake” isn’t hard or time consuming. We’ve posted both the Grasshopper definition as well as the 2D pattern for our Glowflake below. Just follow the simple instructions and you too can be the proud owner of a custom magnetic light fixture.
Happy Holidays from everyone at LMN.
This Holiday Season, we made “Glowflakes” …a hybrid of snowflakes and LED throwies. Glowflakes!
This definition was written to speed up the process of creating a contour model while limiting the amount of waste generated during the fabrication of the physical model. An interface …
