Updated on Semester Research

After  further testing I have discovered that for the time being, a hexagonal grid pattern is not a viable solution for this semester’s research with the limited time left. Due to the fact that the plastic is not directly smashed on the the fabric as it was during the 2D panel tests, there is a little bit of drag that is allowed before the plastic hits the suspended fabric—this causes a certain amount of curve smoothing to occur  in the the extrusion path. Therefore a diagrid pattern is still the best solutions as it allows the extrusion path to be linear allowing the … Continue reading Updated on Semester Research
