Reverse Engineering: a Medusa

Precedent_Medusa (scyphomedusae) Drawings

This is a Machine Assembly Drawing of a ridge of a designed object developed from Medusa’s jelly fish drawings. The fabrication of this doubly-curved creature was not resolved as merely an egg-crate nor stacked contours, but sub-divided as chambers with endoskeleton and exoskeleton, expressed and supported by scales, skin, vertebrae and tentacles. All these elements are essentially developable and readily produced on the laser-bed.

It extends from a two-dimension representation to posing a challenge on the seriousness on the construction norms of blob-like objects.
