field two: points

The definition above generates a field of points from a referenced surface.

The surface is divided into its U+V coordinates. To create additional variability, these coordinate points are connected to (referenced) attractor points, which repulse or draw away.

For the first iteration, attractor points were placed at a high/low area of the surface. This generates a peak and valley effect when fabricated.

The generated field of points were used to generate a toolpath for CNC drilling. This first iteration had “ridges” of material in select areas–although unintended, these ridges may also generate variation when resin is cast.

stay tuned…
