DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Torque - 3D Printed Accessory

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
3D Printed Accessory

INSPIRATION:
Inspired by the idea of using Voronoi diagram as a spatial strategy to re-interpret the robust volume of Dodge 1970 Charger to create a polarized visual effect: futuristic vs. retro; Then pushed further to experiment visualization of Doppler effect to give an additional layer of spatial arrangement to capture acceleration motion, which in general would be challenge with a static object. Also fascinated to experiment CAD and 3D printing to bring design and manufacture an integrated process.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Torque is a 3D printed decorative accessory that captures the spirit of legendary 1970 Charger from film Fast&Furious with material options in resin,brass,silver and other metal alloys.It has two overlaying layers of Voronoi grids that offer a strong alternation to Cartesian grids with its structural loads remain evenly distributed.The grids shape start round and dense to gradually compacted and loose toward the tail; this reflects the Doppler effect, here, a car with an accelerating velocity.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Torque is a 3D printed artifact designed as a display accessory for the film Fast & Furious. The non-conventional aesthetics created by complex hollow Voronoi structure does not fatigue with time. First-time relishing or long-time collecting, one can always discovering new spatial opportunities or intriguing design details.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started on 1.10.2017 in Boston and finished on 2.20 2017. It is a product designed and manufactured for the Universal Studios.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The design process integrated digital modeling and 3D printing with constant awareness of parameters and constrains. Digital scan of the car was divided into two layers of skins: outer layer registered approximately the car’s perimeter, and inner conceptual layer is a meteor-like volume - a metaphor of speed and direction. Both layers were divided into Voronoi grids with algorism. The Doppler effect was created with additional parametric attractor: tension was generated toward head of the car.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Length: 100mm Width: 37mm Height: 24mm Material: Resin, Brass, Silver, available in other metal

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Researched digital modeling focusing on 3D Voronoi form and 3D printing technologies including DMLS, SLA, and DLP etc. Research has been done online, by phone interviews & onsite visits to technology facilities; experimented intensively to reach technical stability. Experimented cross-platform digital modeling method using NURBs & subdivision based software, which brought new possibility on spatial designs. 3D printed 2-layer Voronoi structure in different materials.

CHALLENGE:
Digital modeling of a smooth spatial Voronoi structure is the most challenging part. To develop the planer Voronoi system that is readily available to spatial Voronoi structure, extensive research was conducted on different methods and software, and intensively experimented modeling among mesh, NURBs and subdivisions; and ultimately developed a viable method to generate accurate Voronoi grids.
