Fablab Ressources

Generative Opensource Furniture

We had an issue in our lab, as we we have our largest wall with glass windows.

I came up with the idea of installing some wood panels against those windows, and maintain them with a hidden wood block from behind.

Here is the design process in accelerate:

Generated support frame used as constraining shape for cutting.

Using router and cutting and moving clamps to access middle area.

This shape can be styled for each new design, based on each’s preference.

Following curve along the offset shape.

The number of rows, columns, the size of the base panel is also parametric so it can be adapted to any specific place or existing wood material.

Generative Opensource Design for Fablabs

I just designed a system for fablab storage of consumables.

I started designing it on paper

Using a very simple slit system of intricated panels i started creating the frame.

Orientation of slits matters a lot in this case but also order of assembly.

After an afternoon of work i finally designed on grasshopper a generative definition to create lasercutable plans for assembly

Assembling the pans in the order so to get a steady mesh.

And inside the drawer.
