Sound device, based on the drawdio project.
This project was developed together with Carolina Pino and Cristóbal Valenzuela.
The device was fabricated in a Laser Cutter (epilog 36xt) and a vynil cutter (roland camm servo).
about design and the supremacy of human mind over machines
Ou yeah man, acoustic ceiling project and the members of parametrica.org, rockin´ the national tv news!!!!, showing some grasshopper and parametric stuff..
This is another fabrication tool that i wrote almost two years ago for my thesis. So… let´s show the code!!!!
This tool was developed for the automated process of unrolling planar surfaces for fabrication via laser cut or cnc cut. It allows the user to select the surfaces of the model (or polysrf) and make an array of contours with an ID, in the model and the array (for further assembly help). I wrote it for the ribber tool, and added to the MAB FPS and exatect structure scripts.
It´s a very simple, but powerfull tool ,i hope you use it , and again , do whatever the f#$#cK u want. but remember to name the real author of the script.
Video showing the script running, (in spanish).
stay tuned for more SHOW ME THE CODE!!! in escripto…
OK, lets show the code!!!..

Some images from my final project for my master degree thesis. its a parametric bridge with a parametric skin – (hexatect). All the project it´s defined by scripting (rhinoscript) and some specific grasshopper definitions (vb.net) .
Project: acoustic Ceiling
design : D. Pinochet + “art & science” class : Arturo Torres + P. Gonzalez
Analisis and design adjusments: Diego Pinochet (early tests) – Constanza jorquera (final tests)
Executive project and Construction: Arturo Torres – Paloma Gonzalez – Constanza Jorquera
This is an old project (january – march 2008 ) , for the PUC. it´s and acoustic ceiling made of plasterboard. the objective of this work , was to develop new possibillities fdor the plasterboard material , according to deformations, specially the double curvature of the each panel.
