ABOUT ACROPORA FLOWER

Acropora flower concept is based on a Coral branching structure in nature. We have been studying and experimenting the growth of coral in nature.  The branching structure achieved with a Rhino/Grasshopper and python script. We looked at density, thickness and quality of material over the time. We always inspired from nature and natural phenomena. 

 
 

Process

This is the Acropora flower progress design. every branch is  growing at variable rates, density and thickens into complex configurations which mimic the natural forms of Acorpora corals. Through this generative jewelry design process, we are trying to compare  branch  density vs branch thickness and find out more about the 3D printer limits. Also , through this process we will found which one is better candidate for polishing.
