The 3D printed shell becomes the mould for the inner core; different materials such as lime, gypsum, sawdust, jute, hemp, resin, can compose the inner casting material.
The first MIMICRY was built using a compound of gypsum, lime, water, and sawdust. In this case, the PLA shell act as a container and mould for the inner form. The polymer layers and texture allow the filtering of excess water ensuring the mixture greater compactness and strength.
For MODULON was used a translucent resin that allows the LED light to be visible.
MODULON is designed as an expandable system: The individual modules in the sinuous vertical forms can be printed in connection with other modules using thin flexible membranes in PLA. These connections allow creating large arrays in different forms and shapes connected to the base with a resin cast.
