Testing the folding capacities of sheet steel and fabrication through a typical workshop.
The first image is the paper model.
The second is the steel sheet - folded from 1.6mm thick galvanised steel. The overall size is 3m x 1.5m.
The third image shows a detail of the folds.
As expected, it's difficult to make multiple folds around a point. The image shows the limits of the folding press and the fabricators. They come close and the discrepancies show the evident machinery tolerances.
The folded sheet is a part of a larger project in the inner city of Sydney. Check for future posts.
