Digital Body

OBJECTIVE
In this assignment, I will use the 3D software to obtain a body-figure and I will follow a  digital fabrication process to produce it.
3D software:
SLIDER FOR FUSION 360
Rhinicero3D

DIGITAL DEVELOPMENT
I wanted to reinterpret the body-figure to obtain a body a digital sculpture.
The body uses was a 3D model download from the internet.
To achieve a sculpture effect I use Grasshopper. I divide the body mesh into lines using Contour commandsubdivided the liens into points and finally connect it by a polyLine.
The final step was to connect the polyLine with Loft and generate the surfaces.
On the following pictures is possible to see the gradual steps, between a clean model, with a high number mesh and a blurry model made by a low number of surface.

DIGITAL FABRICATION

  • Export the file from Rhino in obj format and import it in SLIDER FUSION360.
  • Once the model is open in Slide360 is possible to simulate the different way to fabricate it.

PHYSICAL FABRICATION

  • I laser cut 6 sheets 100 x 60 cm to obtain a body mannequin with 200 pieces.
  • The pieces as clue together with liquid glue
