Approximation of the Mind

Award for The State of Innovation Summit 2009

 

Challenge:

To create a very complex sculpture that would be ready to display in a very short period of time. Due to complexity and constraints set forth by the artist, manufacturing options of the sculpture were very limited. The sculpture had to be created in a single piece and have a uniform aesthetically pleasing surface finish. Conventional manufacturing methods of creating complex structures require breaking the part into many pieces; then assembling all of the pieces into a final assembly that become the finished part.  This is a time consuming process that also lends itself to accumulated error in the final assembly.

 

Solution:

Upon reviewing the project HARBEC‘s high-tech SLScapabilities came to mind immediately. It was an efficient solution that began with transferring the artists’ design into the compatible format; next, the machine produced the sculpture, layer by layer. The final piece was completed and ready for display in less than 48 hours.

 

Results:

The sculpture was successfully presented during The State of Innovation Summit in Washington D.C. The sculpture was then scaled up and reproduced at a size that was 30% larger than the original piece. This demonstrated the flexibility and ease of modification within this process.
