Vase/ Pitcher Interrupted...


An additional set of designs that, in a similar manner to the Meat&Bone designs but through a different set of means, use some of the idiosyncrasies of the FDM process as a feature in the final design... 

In this instance the 'Sparse' setting of the fabrication process - which allows one to save material in thicker bulk/ wall builds by creating a (usually hidden) grid/ lattice within the mass - is here allowed to become 'exposed' in all its perpendicular glory by both, A) manually interrupting the fabrication process mid build to reveal the inner grid and, even before commencing such a build, B) designing the digital file with enough 'residual' volume to allow for such interruptions without the final design appearing 'stumped'... 

More examples of 1:1 FDM design using both the 'Interrupted' and the 'Meat&Bone' technique in future submissions...
