Last week I particapted the monthly research hackathon focusing on computational fabrication. We made a pop-up design of furniture module using Silhouette cutting machine. The design was inspired by pop up cards and was aimed to cut a single piece of board to form foldable furnitures such as tables and chairs. Since the ideal materials to create furniture, such as woodboard, are thicker than paper, folding is no more an easy operation. In order to make folding possible, we used a series of dash lines to creat a curved edges. The furniture also need additional support to make the structure stable and be able to hold weight. So far we do not have good solutions to this problem, and simple support cutted from the board were used to help stablize the structure.
