Assignment 05b Laser Cut Panels for Responsive Components Project

Cut either for the beginning of class on Tuesday, Nov. 26th:

1. The three states of your panelized surface (Open, Mid, Closed), OR

2. A cluster of panels that demonstrate the responsive nature of your facade

Material/Dimensions:  Bristol board (self-purchased from Pearl Paint on Canal/Broadway or Blick just North of Houston, east of Broadway) employing a maximum individual panel size of 12″ x 12″

Prepare your model for the laser, depending on the complexity of your output, with either Grasshopper or Rhino. You will want to review one of the videos:
