Knife Cutter

This is a current group project in our Digital Fabrication course. We are researching the curved crease to generate forms out of .02 PETG. We finally got the knew knife cutter in the fab lab and had it up and cutting for us the day after we were trained! The tool that does the creasing for us doesn't cut anything, just presses into the material and the PETG folds up really easily afterwords. This particular form works through some of our connection and assembly issues before we get moving on the large installation (still to be designed). This project in is collaboration with John Hilmes, Bennett Scorcia and Matthew Strong.
