I’m researching modular structures and as an end result I would like to make a bag that is flexible and can collapse.
The bag I’m envisioning would be made out of different particles. And each particle would have a different function, but in the whole of the structure they would all fit and work together. These particles are all going to be 3D printed and I would like to also use different materials to see which one goes best with the design.
These are the latest additions I made for the exhibition.
This is my first honeycomb print. The different particles can move too and in the opposite direction from each other.
Honeycomb particles binded by elastic
Another trial with particles, hoops and elastic
The same shape as the trial above, except this time the edges are on an angle. I wanted to see if it would collapse better this way. I didn’t get the results I hoped for.
Another attempt on a collapsible structure
This is a picture while printing the object above
These are bendable particles made into a foldible structure
And some more details…
Started off by making some collapsible models out of straws
Some 3D prints to experiment with flexibility and movement of the particles
