ASSEMBLING GESTALT MODULES
I was in charge of the assembly of the Gestalt Modules of the machine that makes designed by Nadya.. and making the pixel planter. I proceeded to download the data from the MTM website. You can find it in HERE (MTM) Due to the difficulties finding the 3mm conventional cardboard, I turned to another reference of a cardboard: a 3 mm thick Bookbinding cardboard, in grey. (http://www.modulor.de/en/bookbinding-cardboard-grey.html) Using the same specifications of the original data of the gestalt modules. As a result, the material was bent previously, changing the cutting and engraving areas. Because of the hardness and thickness of the material, I couldn’t fold the cardboard as expected. Therefore, I had to look for other options. The most common cardboard that you can find in Germany is the 6 mm cardboard. Therefore, I edited the measurements of the cardboard thickness using the Rhino and Grasshopper data. In the panel of thickness, there are some modifications that you have to check before cutting but in general it doesn’t work so well, doing the folding shape.
