Spaceframe aast installation

aast/// spaceframe installation
Location: aast exhibition Settimo Torinese, Turin, Italy
Authors: Davide del Giudice, Andrea Graziano

Spaceframe structure is an installation of a 3D surface of flat triangular paper panels "massive" unrolled on a plane and realized with laser cut technologies.

Triangular panels create a 3D pyramid surface configuration with parametric holes in the interior faces that have dimensions which follow distances from centroid areas faces and one point attractors defined by the user.

Process: My Rhino Grasshopper definition was rebuilt, and optimized based on a definition found at Designalyze. I have implemented the new definition by including parametric functions to create a "massive unroll" pyramids getting a file with the panels A and B separated, numbered, with the faces of the pyramid united among each other trough common edge, flap to the joints between panels and more. In this way the lasercut machine come out of the panels that you just bend to get the final three-dimensional configuration.
