CodeKitchen x FabCafe: Sublime Textiles | 11.04.2016 

Use 3-D scan data to synthesize new texture designs using a multi-material 3-D Printer

Co Taught by the SUTD Industrial Design Studio (Sanjay Pushparajan, Melissa Mak Lak Ping, Vivek Sureshkumar) & Sayjel Patel, Research Associate, SUTD DManD Centre,

 

CodeKitchen: “Sublime Textures” introduces 3D Sampling: a new method for applying the data generated from 3D scanners to create new  texture designs. While conventional CAD practices constrain the form of design models, 3-D scans allow us to reverse this methodology: making detailed digital replicas of physical objects the starting point for design. Akin to sampling in the field of electronic music, new computational tools and methods are required which enable a designer to analyze, filter, manipulate, and apply the performative qualities of 3-D scans to model design features that would be impossible to replicate through conventional CAD approaches. In this workshop, participants will learn how to sample, remix, and apply texture features drawn from physical objects to create 3-D printed components.


 

1. LETS GET STARTED

  • Please have Install Adobe Photoshop, GIMP, or MS Paint

  • FREE Download GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) : L I N K

  • Download Template Files : Photoshop  or  Gimp

 

2. SHARE YOUR REVIEW

  • Tag CodeKitchen on Instagram: #CODEKITCHEN, Twitter: @MIT_CodeKitchen & Facebook: @CodeKitchenSingapore

  • Tag FabCafe on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook: @fabcafe  

 

3. UPLOAD YOUR FILE

  • Please upload your textures images to our shared google drive, by creating a folder with your name, and the name of your texture (ie. Name of participant_Name of texture).  This will help us identify whose textures belong to whom when they come to collect.  You may also submit using shared thumbdrives at the event. 

 

4. COLLECT YOUR PRINT

  • Your print will be available for pick-up at the FabCafe, Art Science Museum from November 11th - December 11th.
