Project Process Planning – 3D printed flower #1

Standard

My idea for my project is to compare the natural aesthetic of a flower with the manufactured aesthetic of a 3D printed flower. The main idea is to try and create a 3D printed flower that has the appeal of a natural flower.

The above sculptural flower was formed by simulating the biological process that plants use to form their own flower buds, branches and leaf stems.

There is a need for the project to be an example of repetition and iteration. In my project the repetition could be in the production of the 3D printed flower or in the placement and comparison of presenting the flowers. The repetition and iteration will need to be thought about more.
