Self-Support is a 3D printed sculpture of three aerialists. It’s my Piecing It Together final.
This semester I’ve become very interested in 3D body scans. Up until now everything I’ve done has been great for learning, but the final products have been really low quality. For the final, I’m interested in creating a series of high-quality 3D scans and prints.
Our assignment for Piecing It Together this week was to create a puzzle with an odd number of pieces. Nicole and I worked together to create and print 3D body scans of different body positions that would fit together.
This week in Piecing It Together we learned to make 3D models to print on the Makerbot. I worked with Danielle Butler to do 3D scans with Scanect on an aerial harness.
For my Piecing It Together midterm I am thinking about building a prototype of a clock that my dad has been talking about for a few years.
Our week one assignment for Piecing it Together is: Pick one object and draw that object as you see it on the table. Imagine how you would slice it into 2d pieces in order to recreate it, and draw samples of these slices.
