PRESS FIT / JOINT INVESTIGATIONS

 

PAPER STUDY MODEL

TAB JOINT CONNECTIONS – LOCATION STUDIES

POTENTIAL JOINT LOCATIONS / CUT SHEET

FULL SCALE PRESS FIT TESTS

Tests were cut from 1/16″ Polyproplyene. Various tab widths and heights were investigated.

Most successful tab, improvements should be made to relieve material on outermost sections of tab

PRESS FIT TESTS REDUX

Most successful tab

FULL SCALE FOLDED JOINT TEST

Investigates material thickness issue. In the original folding design, four folds occupy one plane. With the addition of a 1/16″ material thickness it was uncertain how the fold geometry would respond.

No listeners Prereq: Permission of instructor ; Yr-1 MArch students who have completed 4.123 only Level: H 9 units Standard A - F Grading Can be repeated for credit Lab Fee: 150 A comprehensive introduction to methods of “making” explored through a wide range of brief but focused exercises. Skills = developing complex geometries from flat components; fine-tuning press fit construction, molding and casting, and making repeatable molds for customization. A two-part workshop, the first half will contextualize contemporary tools and techniques within the trajectories of historical case studies of building, combined with hands on familiarization of tools. The second half will implement the tools of our workshop in the context of Design. Working on group design build process for three MIT 150 FAST installations, students will test and influencing designs through the instrumentality of production. These hands-on design build projects are intended to produce reciprocity between skills and design, making more complete the problems of fabrication. Subject limited to year-one MArch students who have completed core-1 studio. Contact: Nick Gelpi, 9-224, 253-9415, ngelpi@mit.edu -
