Life of an Architecture Student..

in #architecture3 years ago

Hey Steemians,
Just a quick post to show you all what ive been working on the last week.

Its a 1m x 1.5m site model (scale 1:500) of an old quarry here in prague.

Im using the site for a diplomar project im preparing for university.

To explain the process to get to this point below.

I firstly had to draw all the contour lines in Autocad, slice and seperate them onto sheets 1m x 0.5m. Then using a projector trace all these contour lines onto my foam blocks.

Once that was done i had to cut out every single contour line using a hot wire cutter.

Then the complicated bit.... Assembling, pining and glueing all the pieces together.... And working out which way the contours go along the way.

All in all this took me a week to complete and it was ALOT of hard, stressful and complicated work. Now i have to design my buildings to go on the site. #funpart!

Ill be sure to show progress pics along the way!

Wow that is a lot of work right there. This is where 3D printing comes in handy lol.

Thanks, Yeah it sure was. Im actually in the process of constructing my own 3D printer. Unfortunately there are few printers big enough to construct models as large as the one i made. Hopefully in the future the technology gets bigger.

At least they can still be printed into parts/sections and you just have to piece it together. But it would take a long time to print it lol. A friend of mine owns a 3D printing business and if I remember correctly, it took 4 days to print this big ship for a client lol

I love also architect. It's really amazing for us. life will be happy with that. specially thanks for you.

You have a minor misspelling in the following sentence:

firstly had to draw all the contour lines in Autocad, slice and seperate them onto sheets 1m x 0.
It should be separate instead of seperate.
