### gt_2p creates creates curvilinear table using parametric software

Chilean digital design and fabrication studio gt_2p created this curvilinear table using parametric software. The table is part of a series of furniture created using software called SECTION. The software adapts the parameters of the table according to what material is selected and its associated characteristics. What the software essentially does is create 2 dimensional sectional layers to create an overall shape. The program uses grasshopper to efficiently integrate design and digital fabrication together. It is made of layers of interlocking plywood and a tempered glass overlay.
Its not that hard to make this type of a table using rhino. All it takes is the contour function and a laser cutter, really… I think whats innovative about this project (and overly worded by the firm) is that they are attempting to make a program that can automatically prepare the drawings to be cut for any form that one puts into it, without having wasting time contouring and figuring how one piece ‘locks’ into another.. You simply provide a form, and the program figures out the rest… Now a bad idea, but why limit this to only tables?
