### Press Fit Exercise

1. 1. Cutting 1 using laser cutter Press-fit: ● Exersice 1 -Furniture/Table ● The idea is to made a functional design using small amount of pieces which I extended it from 3 to four. I have made this table design for 1:1 scale which is showen in the 3D model/with 3D max/ but for the ● model scaled 1:5 have used plywood showing the press fit.
2. 2. ● Joining/press fit ● The different parts to assemble are four; on the 1st step fixing a and b; 2 -larger circular top/C and finally on stage3-the top/d. For the actual product I ● am planning to addstep4-1 glass top (equal rad. with d). * I am planning to develop this idea more.
3. 3. Press Fit 2 1 2 3 ● The different parts to assemble are four; on the c d 1st step fixing a and b; 2 -larger circular top/C and finally on stage3-the top/d. For the actual product I ● am planning to addstep4-1 glass top (equal rad. with d). a b
4. 4. Press fit exersice 2: ● Motion representing shapes The idea of this press fitting is to experiment on the different shapes which coherent and be read together. This is a part which comes out of something which stands alone and be read together. The best shape I found to use this is circular and directional arrow. Since our laser cutter cuts flat pieces I want it to be viewed from one direction. Within 8 main peaces sub circles/excluding the supportive shapes I tried to combine 8 pieces.
5. 5. The base construction: ● The shapes suggest movement. In addition what I wanted to show is the directions, which here I suggested 8 directions to be assembled. They can be read as all together or they can be seen as a whole.
6. 6. Options and probability ● Here still no screw and no glue but the press fit method connects all. When the two piece's colors be changed they make connection between them and unite them as one. If we use two pieces at a time we can have 56 options. When used different color for each face it can be multiplied by two /112.I want to leave it as is because I don’t want to restrict the idea, so by trying anything movable which could be found in nature have any possibilities.
7. 7. Pictures from-Snow crystal.com If we subtract the two pieces from left and right we will find hexagonal shape which lightens it up just like snow crystal. These shapes suggests non-end movement.
8. 8. ● Stage 1: The top two rectangles attached by press fit with different techniques like I have used on the table top. Stage2- would be piercing the triangle to fit the cylinderical shape, the third one is connecting the base to the top. At last fitting the sub shapes to each branch. The last stage is the users preference, to match 2 shapes at a time and play with it.
