Orihon (Accordion Book) (Thing:110411) by tomburtonwood:

This is my first iteration of a 3D printed book. I have been meaning to work on this idea for a while – and with a new perspective on the summer – i have been able to find the time to develop it.

I have been thinking for some time how it would be nice to produce a book of textures and reliefs. To publish and distribute all the wonderful architectural patterning and decoration we enjoy here in Chicago and beyond.

The impetus for this project was a call for submissions from the Center for Book and Paper here in Chicago at Columbia College. The exhibition calls for both “print on demand” and “photographic” books. This “publication” is my response.

I think that – for now – the accordion style format is the most realistic. Although i would love to do some kind of traditionally bound book format – as a 3d printed object.

I also was wary of printing the whole thing in one go – it would easily have been a 80 – 100 hour print – and a lot could go wrong in that time span. After some experimentation with other connectors I prototyped a modular hinge and a modular surface that could be joined together with tbusers pins.

I chose six 3d scans scans from Thingiverse, three of my own and one each from Jason Bakutis / The Met, Pretty Small Things and AMinimal Studio. The scans – to my knowledge were (probably) all created with 123d Catch or another photogrammetry application.

The “front cover” explains how these reliefs were created, and has the Creative Commons License for the work. The “back cover” is a list of works. These two elements were created in Illustrator saved out as svg files, imported into tinkercad and extruded / booleaed with a Modular Surfaces.
