Study of spiderwebs and its applications

Modeling software has come a long way to prove that it can be a valuable tool in many fields including design and architecture. Additive manufacturing or 3D printing has surpassed the boundaries of the digital world and push the limits of scale and form. Driven by the simple but complex structures explored in the works of Noa Raviv, Tomás Saraceno and Frei Otto, the following looks at the different spiderweb patterns to develop a series of parameters using the Grasshopper plugin for Rhino. By taking the two-dimensional printed forms, and exposing them to heat, the material would become malleable and easy to morph. Its application would result in intricate and complex geometries with a delicate appearance.
