Through iterating a 3D printed mold, our greatest challenge was thinking about the cast product in reverse. How would the angles of the mold affect how the Rockite was taken from the mold? How would we extract a centerpiece so as to not disrupt the rest of the cast?
Comprised of six total pieces, the final mold locks together like a puzzle at the lowest point of intersection. Making up the six pieces are three base elements and three “tower” elements. To create less surface tension on the Rockite, the tower elements separate to produce the triangular void.
Imagined as a facade, this flat-back mold has three extruded surfaces and one void, a module that can be rotated to create a variance of light penetrating the void on the reverse side.
