Digital fabrication. Acoustic panel, Design and fabrication: Tomas Mena
This personal Project was designed as part of a digital fabrication course dictated by architects Juan Pablo Quintero and Maria Teresa Leon in the fabrication shop Medio Design in Barcelona Spain. The project was restricted to only one piece of wood and it could not exceed the area of a sheet (1.22 m x 2.44 m). The piece was conceived taking in account manufacturing processes with 2+1/2 axes CNC cutting machines. The objectives of the exercise sought to explore the processes of design and logical methods used in digital fabrication. The main tools used were softwares like Rhino and Rhino CAM. The design consists of several triangles assembled with adjustable parts that form a detachable complex surface intended to be used for acoustic diffusion.
