Some tests done with Silkworm based on parametric line geometries generated with a simple grasshopper definition. The principle is to create a solid structural outer shell which supports inner lines that span between different points of the perimeter. The inner lines define a ruled surface while the outer shell is a prism with an n-sided […]
Our Project Silkworm prints were exhibited at the first 3D print show in London last week. We were part of the Simply Rhino and Uformia stand. A big thank you to Paul Cowell of Simply Rhino and Turlif Vilbrandt, Alexander Pasko and all the Uformia team.
Announcing the first release of the Silkworm plugin for Grasshopper! This release includes components to convert Grasshopper geometry to paths, edit the GCode properties of paths, create and preview a print model and convert this to GCode for 3d printing. As an introduction to the Silkworm workflow we have included this short video […]
The development team are currently finishing up files for the first release of Silkworm. Stay tuned for the plugin, example files and manual in the next couple weeks!
