Right now the Library hosts a brand new exhibition of models made by students at the spring course HARD CO(u)R(s)E.
Inspired by the topic Skin & Bone, second-year students have been working with glass and bronze creating some spectacular objects.
The glass shapes originate from sculptures formed out of clay. The sculptures were scanned using a 3D scanner, and the scans were then modified in Rhino and AlphaCAM to generate code for milling the glass forms on the CNC milling machine.
To create the bronze structures, the students used an old technique called cire perdue or lost wax. 3D prints combined with other materials, such as wax, were cast in a mold made from a mix of plaster and grog. The glass and bronze were fitted together for final assembly.
The impressive results can be seen at the library.
The HARD CO(u)R(s)E was conducted by Teaching Assistant Professor Kasper Riis Jensen, Research Assistant Joel Letkemann, and Associate Professor Jonathan Foote.
