When you concentrate on the entire sensory delights you’d discover at a music competition, a mirror doesn’t actually pop to the highest of your thoughts. Nonetheless, this crew of architects Adam Cigler and Petr Vacek got here up with a technique to make mirrors essentially the most fascinating factor there.
This artwork set up known as “Reflection” was born out of a public name at PrusaLabs (those who make Prusa 3D Printers). They’ve a makerspace of their manufacturing unit, and have been keen to fund an enormous spectacular mission with supplies, area, and ability.
The outcomes you see are the fruits of 6 months of exhausting work between Adam, Petr, and the crew of individuals at PrusaLab. It drew a continuing crowd at Sign competition, with over 60,000 individuals coming to view it.
Let’s soar into the development a bit bit. Yow will discover the entire breakdown right here, however I believe there are just a few actually cool gadgets to level out.
In whole, there are 91 particular person mirrors, managed by 182 servos. Every mirror is individually managed, however on the again finish the entire thing is break up into modules of just some mirrors. It takes 6 raspberry pi boards to tug every part collectively and make all of it talk.
After all being made on the PrusaLab means loads of 3d printing, as you possibly can see within the design and prototype above. There was additionally loads of laser slicing and cnc as properly. 3D printing isn’t an ideal device for each job, for instance the again body that all of it connects to is CNC milled from plywood (seen beneath).
All in all, this factor is unimaginable trying whereas in movement. Severely, in case you haven’t watched the video but, go test it out.
