3D Printed Tiles Using Rhino/Panelling Tools

As part of a 2nd year Digital Design Course at [ARC] Department of Architecture, University of Nicosia, participants were asked to model and 3D print a tessellated tile using Rhino and paneling tools.

Cyprus has a long history of decorative patterns of noteworthy geometric complexity. Starting from discovering such a pattern, participants developed and proposed their own 3-dimesnional pattern and populated it to create a tessellated tile, using the knowledge acquired during the course. The tile was modeled in Rhinoceros 3D/panelling tools, set in Voxelizer, exported and fabricated using the desktop Z-morph 3D printers of [ARC] University of Nicosia.For the illustrations we have used Neon for Rhino.
