This is a project exploring the properties of 3d-printed patterns. I designed a chain structure that each unit interlock each other, inspired by fish scales.
An application of the fabric - lid of a clutch
I am inspired by the ancient fish scale armor. The way they laces the scales is simple, practical and beautiful.
Algorithms-aided lacing in Grasshopper.
The parameters made it easier to adjust the thickness, distance and number of the scales.
Finally printed with ABS, with dissolvable support structure.
