This project is an exercise in slicing fluid forms to produce a 3-Dimensional interlocking grid. A form was designed to function as part of a light fixture - the form was then sliced in 2 perpendicular directions at an interval that allows the original form to be legible. The digital slices were then run through an algorithm that accommodates for material thickness and proper notching. The final cad file was used to laser cut the numbered segments for physical fabrication:
