Project in collaboration with Hoberman Associates

New York based Engineer Chuck Hoberman asked me to develop a marketing tool for his recently innovated retractable shading facade panel, which was on display in the MoMA's Design and the elastic mind exhibition in 2008. The panel so far had only been proven to work on a ruled or flat surface.

My task was to test and demonstrate the panel's ability to be propagated along a doubly curved surface. After in-depth analyzation of the panel in CATIA to investigate its boundaries, I created a set of geometry rules.

I created a script in CATIA that rationalizes a complex surface based on user inputs for accuracy and cost preferences. It loops through a range of checks and alternates the panel locations to stay within tolerable boundaries to optimal shape and user preferences.
