Still having trouble with the filleting.
Assignment 4 | Making a Flashlight
I spent a lot of time trying to export a branding unto my object. I wanted to import it and then extrude it, leaving a relief into to face of the flashlight. Again, having a bit of trouble filleting, I cannot decipher what are the problems, as they seem to be different every time. I improvised on the metal handle a bit, for I could not tell what the shape actually was. Also, I had an issue relating the base and the neck of the flashlight. There were splits, for a reason I could also not tell. All the rest went fine. What we viewed with the phocet was very useful, and I went back to it a couple of times. I took the importunity to explore with different commands, very important to work with different layers. it was good to have access to the last flashlight we did in class to make the shape of the button, which was successful. Just spent the last 20 minute troubleshooting hopw to upload anm image on the wiki. it says that there
this is a sketch exported as dwg file from Ai. realizing how hard it is to create gradient with Ai. for Rhino can only recognize vectors. Here was thinking of creating layers to render in laser cut print on acrylic sheets a sense of gradation. vectoring lines in illustrator creates curves that are arbitrarily made. in object---->"make and expand" trying to figure out to make more "natural" line or at least have more control over them. thinking about creating a sculptural work, usng also colored transparent ink on acrylic. already have one 18x24 inch acrylic, thick of 0.25 inch, and 4 other less thick. here is also am gae, the line vectrs are cretaed by recognizing similar tone values of an image.
this photo is the result of a first test I did -on an acrylic sheet- with the laser cutter. I was able, although it might not seem very visible on this photograph, to create a gradient inside the leaf-like looking design (the oval). I was able to create the shape of the object by making a sketch of 2 lines meeting each other on paper. I then scanned the shape and created a vector line through Ai. I printed the design as such and then applied oiled-ink on the object
this photo is of a work in progress. I paid special attention to the rastering process. I printed a design on this acrylic that I manipulated through photoshop. I imported the design on Ai. I was dissapointed in the result, for I would have wished a more thorough rastering of the sheet, but the machine would ave taken 2h30 to complete this. Therefore I was unable to fully execute the process I wanted to make in the latter stages of this project, which consisted of applying ink on the unrastered spaces to give more depths to the overall image. UI used foil and spray-paint as a background.
here the only trouble was the blending curve. I adventured myself in creating this bottle with a personal touch I felt it needed. I wanted to create curves that were a bit different and see if I could work my way through them. I was thinking of creating a design a little more complicated. However, I had trouble with the BlendCrv command, as it wouldn't allow me to finish the design the way I wanted to.
I want to make a design, like below, that holds another object. This design;'s function is purely decorative. I want to play with this notion. I then want to make a decorative object through the laser cutter that can hold on it. I think this can evolve, using the 3d printer to supplement acrylic sheets I will be using.
Still thinking about stands: functional object for decoration. Ideas about large installation with stands.
this is an arranged version of my first design. Since the one (on the previous image below,)was a simple extruded shape, I decided to tweek this one a bit. It has a more design(decorative)aspect, so I got a bit more creative in creative in using the bounding box (cageedit). Also, this one is thicker.
Just saw my first print in real life. I will complete a total of 4-5 thorough designs for my final. All designs will explore the idea of support and the function of decoration. although i have somewhat of a conceptual basis for making these things, I am also really excited about the humor that is going to be in these objects. The sense of scale is important for me. and these will vary in the design and their purpose.
Am also designing a specific object to support a large scale piece I am doing for another class. Intending to lacquer, paint or spray paint this design.
each design is specific to its supported object. In turn, all the designs will be shown with these objects.
Here is the result of 4 designed stands. Each Rhino-designed objects have the quality of being stands. However, they have different functions based on the objects that they interact with. In this case, one acts as a viewing tool for a foiled piece I created, which here acts also acts as a background, for the miniature bust. Another one subverts the eating mat, as an object, and creates a sort of bench. Another object, which orignially taken from a japense style fan stand is now erected as an "objet-d'art" because of the object it is sitting on.
