Current Progress on OffsetTo date, the offset connection is able to build a multi-level bookshelf with all finger joints properly added on all edges. This bookshelf would be buildable with lazer cutter and wood.The current implementation is based on the original addConnection() function. I add...

This week I went through the Roco source codes related to building the components. With that understanding, I build a artificial perpendicular connection in 3D using the current Roco implementation which is based on origami. It occurred to me that any furniture built based on origami is actually iso...

For the first part of this week, I read Wenzhong's research proposal and got an understanding of general ideas behind this project. For this quarter, my subtask of this project is trying to solve : (1) Multiple faces on one edge, so that the project can build furniture with nultiple levels, such as...
