Stereotomy iteration

Armed with all the vault details observed in Mallorca in mind, this new (much more successful) cutting pattern was developed.


This new cutting pattern is used for the  new 3D-printed model which has been printed and assembled by Lara. The tolerance issues, due to the 3D printing process, observed on the last model, only worsened due to the increased size of the model. We will have to look for more accurate 3D-printers in order to obtain realistic structural models of stone-cut vaults and to consider this approach as a feasible way to prototype complex vaulted assemblies. More about this soon…
