Resulting form begins to take the shape of an ellipse, but the halves of the geometry meet a point instead of maintaining a smooth curve.

Resulting form is a 3 dimensional ellipse made of a ‘matrix’ of spheres that follows both a “regular” path and are “random” in size and location while a line is drawn as the turtle walks and drops geometry.

What I want to 3D Print:

I decided to focus on the fabrication of only blue portion of the script. Instead of lines connecting the deposited spheres, an extruded path does.

The form is split in half for print feasibility.

How I’m going to 3D Print:

I added support columns in Rhino. (red)

I speculate a next iteration of this project would include:

A more strict set of constraints on the beetle during random walk, thicker extrusions between spheres, and re-designed support columns to reduce the chance of failures to remove cleanly.
