This is part of a series of experiments, seeing how the Replicator can be used to print thin walled forms for the use of casting.


Basically print this part out with a 0 percent fill and either 1 or 2 ply walls. It...mostly works. I might have been a bit impatient with the concrete afterwards, pics of the item will be up soon. It was a bit more fragile than intended.

This was made thanks to the help fo people at All Hands Active, the hackerspace in ann arbor, MI. www.allhandsactive.com

Umm, I think I did this using a mix of programs. Found a program online that mimiced water movement and made black/white images from that. Then used rhino to turn that into a heightfield. Then I think I used weaverbird to smooth it some?....

It could if perhaps you made a silicone form and cast with rigid foam. Can I ask how you made the design? Which modeling program?

Nope. Just looks cool. The method for making it could be used again and again to make unique drops each time. The concept was playing with how to create a wall of tiles in which each one is unique.

does this have accoustic benifits?
