Turbine Wings

We, a team of three students, were developing wings that would fit onto the mount of an electric generator. The objective was to come up with an interesting and replicable way of freeform model-building. The team and I developed a 'Grasshopper' script that splits any freeform-body into three curvature approximating axes and generates a vector template that can then be lasercutted afterwards.
