Planar Studies with Sliceforms

Planar studies of mathematical models from paper sections using sliceforms (a sliceform is a 3D shape, which is assembled from flat slices, forming a light-weight grid structure)

Using the SliceModeler plugin for Google Sketchup software, students can create 3D forms and “slice” them along two axes. The flat two-dimensional forms can then be printed onto sheet material like cardboard, mdf, or plexiglas and cut to create physical 3D models and sculptures.
