Hi All

Congratulations on your studio finals.

Please be prepared on time to present your projects (there will be a projector set up) digitally and physically, check the requirements sent out last week. Here are some last comments for each group:

Paper Efflorescence:
good to go, full size model should be ready
Patrick (Tetrahedrons):
you need a good name.
your files HAVE TO BE LASERCUT out of metal Monday morning, assemble as many modules as possible till Tuesday morning.
no cardboard ! The more the jury sees of the finished full size metal model, the better.
Surface:
Show your concepts, design attempts and experiments with Fibre C. Talk about success & failure. I will send you the photos from the Rosenheim session.
Turtle:
Good to go, full size lasercut model (HP Surface) should be ready. Hope it will stand.

This is my last post.
Check the Finals requirements on the blog. I will be there on Monday morning, let me know any questions/problems

Good luck

Workspace 20.1-31.1 – EG15 /Vordere Zollamtsstr. 3

Hi All

You are quite lucky !
We got a “Project Space” (Room EG15 in the Angewandte Building on Vordere Zollamtsstr. 3) for you to finalize your models. You can work there anytime until the end of the month, check out the key from the portier (and return it !).
We have the room until the 31.1, after the final presentation you will have to leave it clean. It is large enough for everyone, and should be empty. I will try to organize some tables for to work on. Please DO NOT ruin them (with glue, cutter, etc).

Hope this helps with production, every group should have their models done for the final presentation on 31.1. ! Your structures will be exhibited in February and March most probably in the Lichthof B next to the main entrance.

Digital Fabrication Tipps:
1. http://www.happylab.at – Please share among each other information about lasercutting facilities: Does someone have a membership for the HappyLab to help the “Turtle” group ? Other Laser are available at the Academy or TU
2. http://www.metallwerkstaette.com – Walter Schulz with Waterjetmachine for inexpensive metall cutting on Hamburgerstrasse in 1050 Wien for Group “Patrick”
3. http://www.bruellmodellbau.at/ is or has being doing a lot for the Angewandte. They should have a laser. Check it out

Best wishes, and good luck

Visit of Rieder FibreC Production Facilities Friday 13th Jan 8:00-15:00

Hi All

As mentioned before the holidays, we will have the possibility to visit the Rieder Production Facility in Rosenheim-Kolbermoor/Germany on Friday the 13th. The exact address is: Bergstraße 3a | 83059 Kolbermoor.
The day will start with an introduction to the FibreC extrusion production machine at 8:00 and will end around 15:00. Their production line starts early around 8:00 and will end at 11:00, therefore we will have to be there in time at 8:00. You can either take the night train 23:56 from Vienna and arrive there right in time, or organize your team in groups/private cars. You can also stay there the night before.

Although everyone is welcome to join, this visit is voluntary, except for the “Surface” group, they will produce 4-6 test pieces with Rieder this day.
Besides a one hour introduction to the production line, it is thought as a work session for the teams who want to experiment with the FibreC material.

For the other groups, use your time and these rather quiet days to finalize your 1:1 pieces ! I will be in my office this week Wed morning, Thu + Fri afternoon and Mon + Tue morning next week. You should be very advanced in production next Wed morning on the 11th, we should see some large pieces already produced and assembled by then. Please contact me if you have questions/problems in the meantime.

Andrei
