grasshopper voronoi gauntlets

I finally got around to photographing the gauntlet tests that I designed using Grasshopper (a plug-in for Rhino). Grasshopper allows me to map the voronoi pattern over a standard gauntlet. I can then alter the component sliders in Grasshopper to subtly change the design into a new iteration. This allows for complete flexibility in design and the generation of hundreds of variations at the click of one button. Grasshopper automatically regenerates the model based on my changes. The next step would be to develop a complete gauntlet in Grasshopper rather than just applying a pattern to an existing modeled surface.
