The Basics First:
Since we will be working with wood and more specifically straight wood members, we did a quick review of wood to wood joints. This link provides the full text for Taunton’s Complete Illustrated Guide to Working with Wood.
Student: Nik Werenfels Collaborators: Silvan Oestere Cooperation with: Prof. Annette Spiro
Here Werenfels uses simple wood joints as pictured to produce a self supported structural system.
Despite being derived from a mesh this work extracts vertex joints using script. The end result is organizing the structural members so that connections are created clearly.
