Thanks to the people who helped me complete my first ever grasshopper project. Took me 9 months to learn the program and get this done in my free time but today it feels worth it! Thanks. Hope you share my opinion that it looks great
First grasshopper project complete! Stainless Steel Lightshade
I like the interplay between the organic and brutalist aspects of the design.
I like it very much.
Did you make some engraving ?
Did you make some deburring on the inox ?
Is it just painted ?
Thanks for showing the process.
I’m not sure what you mean by some engraving. If you mean to help with folding them, no. In the end I didn’t. The metal was soft enough with the cuts to just fold. Also not sure what inox is. I didn’t have to deburr anything really. It’s a 0.55mm gauge #4 stainless steel. And yes, I just primed and epoxy painted the back side of it which doesn’t have the nice #4 stainless pattern on it. This allowed for the contrasting of the white outside and metal inside and helped it fit better with the white out of the box light fitting I bought from the local hardware shop.
This shows how I attached them:
As far as I remember inox was the word French use for stainless steel or just for steel
Nice piece. Please take a photo with the luminaire working
“Inox” is used in many latin/romance languages as short for unoxidizable steel, tipically the austenitic AISI/SAE300 series or EN1.43xx/EN1.44xx series.
Thanks. Unfortunately I can’t take a photo of it with the luminaire on as it will require an electrician to install and also as I intend to send it away as a gift.
