to Stylize or not to Stylize

2006 • Posted by Kai @ 5:40 PM

Since I am going to use laser cutter to manufacture the form of my structure instead of just use wood sticks, I decided to stylize the shape of every piece of the components. With the laser cutter I can make the structure more professionally and precisely. Ideally, the shape is based on the spider’s leg (e.g. representing the thorn or hair on spider’s legs), and to make it more machine-like. Also the purpose of the design is to reduce the weight of whole structure as much as possible, since I am still want to use battery motor to operate the robotic spider.
