Collaborative Projects

The projects in this category are the design results that I have developed as the Project Leader / Project designer in sKY_Associative. Most of the projects are included in “re-inspired” series projects which were coordinated by Prof. Kane Yanagawa and sponsored by the 3D printing leading company CHIMEI | MODEX & Wen Long Arts Foundation.

( 2016. Spring-Summer)

Dekapede is a computationally defined wall lighting element derived from subdivided mesh geometry and 3D printed with Modex ABS 3D printing filaments demonstrating its direct to fabrication potential. The installation is the product of the “re-Inspired Contraptions” workshop series hosted by sKY_Associative in collaboration with Chimei | Modex. This special workshop event seeks to alleviate the existing barriers to this transformation in design culture, by lowering the cost of purchasing fabrication tools and sharing the necessary skills and knowledge to design with these tools in mind.

With support from the Wen Long Arts Foundation, 15 students were selected from the NCKU College of Design to participate in this three-part workshop where students built their own FDM 3D printers, learn to operate and maintain them, gain technical skills in 3D modelling and parametric design tools, and be exposed to industry professionals from the fields of design and art.

︎ 3D Printing Elements
The limited size printing parts were printed out by the 3D printers developed from "re-Inspired Contraption".

︎ Post-Processing
Gluing each 3D printing parts together and then sanding the surface after printing the primer.  

︎ Spraying Primer and Chromatic Paints

︎ Dekapede hangs on the NCKU Chub@coffee entrance wall
