Flexible 6 point Variable Test Molds

Getting ready to pour some test molds. The first contraption only varies the thickness of the modules in section which is not enough variation.

So through many trials and errors Ive developed an adjustable/flexible mold that introduces six points of controlled variation to allow section thickness to conform to the path of water flowing down and thouroughout the waterfall wall. This mold is made up of hinges the unfold the cast out of the mold to eliminate issues.

Custom concrete countertops/design. Cheng was a favorable inspiration.

 

 

Initial Ideas

Expanding off of the earlier projects with this idea, in hopes of developing a full scale process. The idea developed suddenly and initial design thinking is more of the focus before actual construction of modules and paperwork. The first two projects immediately moved into construction of models and this approach will develop with a new approach.
