This was an exercise in generating gcode for 3d printing using Grashopper. Different support generation was explored, creating continuous 3d toolpaths, and 5-axis geometry.

3d printed optics. Optical geometry is generated and printed using Stratasys "Vero Clear" resin in a Connex 500 printer then post processed with sand paper and polishing compound.

3d printed, CNC cut and laser-cut photos using Autodesk's DynamoBIM and HSMWorks.

Intersections is an exploration of intersecting solids and slicing.

Kerf Lamp is an exploration of the direction of bends in lattice hinges. A pattern is parametrically applied to a spiraled surface then flattened for laser cutting.

Kinetic surfaces is an on-going exploration of 3d printed 'textiles'.

Strips is a parametric model for panelized lamp shades. The spiral form is created by identical strips of laser-cut material and each strip is attached by interlocking tabs.

Elements is a 3D printed installation for a good friend Timothy Lipton. As part of his Artist in Residence at Autodesk, Tim created a living wall with 3D printed flower pots.

The design is based on a algorithm to generate spiraled forms that follow the irrational number Phi. At the base is a hexagon, the foundation of the flower of life. The hexagon is then scaled, rotated and subdivided at a ratio equal to Phi.
