music generator - design by Joe Paradiso. An exercise in electronics. It produced
quite wonderful soundpatterns
motor control test using assembly programming
axis milling using the modella machine - a table top milling machine capable
of milling pieces of about 6x4x2 inches in foam, wood or aluminum

A piston controlled reconfigurable surface with numerical control through a
Various iterations of piston designs were explored as well as different tests
for rubber cast surfaces to carry the cast piece. Fully mechanical functional

exercise was to introduce the PIC chip and the tower development environment.
In a group project with David Merril we used electronic drivers for solenoids
to create a virtual sensing surface. As one slides the solenoids across the
the case their position gets mapped to a height array and the drivers activate
the corresponding solenoids
and water jet cutter exercise. I used a surface puzzle joint system developed
in Spring1999 in 4.207 .
The goal here was to get a better understanding for tolerances
and material behavior forced into double curvature. Materials explored were
aluminum, chipboard and polycarbon
sketch for a physical spline modeler motor controlled. The idea is based on
an earlier programmed spline surface that is controlled through in and outcoming
slope. Devices were 3dprinted to numerically control a physical spline using
polar coordinate system positioning
swing - assignment one called for picking a problem from thinkcycle
I chose the problem to stop a material transport swing from swinging back by
designing a mechanism that allows the swing to stop at any point without fixation.
