Parahelix by Joshia Barnes and Raquel Gallego Lorenzo After the structure was modelled, the horizontal and vertical sections had to be nested in order to lasercut them on two sheets of 2.9 cm thick wood. After calibrating the machine properly,the pieces were successfully cut in approximately 1.5 hours.
The assembly process began with the placement of the regularly placed horizontal sections at 3AM on center. Once the structure of the horizontal sections was stabilized by several intersecting vertical sections,the assembly process was able to be completed by adding vertical elements one by one.
After the pipe structure was completed, white glue was utilized to secure the joint connections.Once dry, Parahelix was structurally sound.
