The art of Gifford Jackson

I was browsing the Museum of Transport and Technology (MOTAT) site, saw a poster for a Boeing related exhibition while cycling today, and stumbled upon an exhibition of one of my Product Design Diploma (early 1980s at UNITEC) Tutor’s work.

Gifford Jackson taught us design drawing (a mixture of illustration, rendering and drafting) sharing his decades of experience working in the US (New York in the 1950s – 60s) and his own New Zealand practice. He was old school, everything by eye and hand, and used his incredible portfolio of maritime and industrial design drawings in the classes.

I remember a refined, elderly (to a teenager, although then in his mid-60s) and patient man who quietly inspired by example and entertained with stories from his amazing career. This included meeting, working with, US design icons like Donald Desky, Walter Dorwin Teague, Carl Otto, and Harold van Doren. For Kiwi design students they were people you just read about in textbooks.

Gifford died (aged 93) in 2015 but his life, and character, was captured in these 2013 interviews by Michael Smythe:

Gifford Jackson - Part 1 | culturalicons.co.nz | “There is a big difference between what we did and what the computer [based designers] do now”

Gifford Jackson - Part 2 | culturalicons.co.nz | “We [Designers] made a difference”

Gifford_video

The exhibition is in the Walsh Memorial Library at MOTAT:

The Art of Industrial Design | Gifford Jackson and the Auckland Rapid Transit scheme

Discover just how close Auckland came to a world-class integrated public transport system in the 1970s. This exhibition, in the Walsh Memorial Library, tells the story of the Auckland Rapid Transit (ART) scheme through vivid illustrations by New Zealand’s ‘godfather’ of industrial design, Gifford Jackson.

Jackson was employed to develop concept drawings of the interior and exterior design of the ART locomotives and carriages. The ART project brought together a team of engineers, town planners and others to plan a rapid rail system – nicknamed ‘Robbie’s Rapid Rail’ after its staunchest supporter, Mayor Sir Dove-Myer Robinson. The ART system never eventuated, with the plans shelved in 1975 following a change in government.

More than forty years after the ART scheme was abandoned, works are now underway for the completion of Auckland’s first underground rail network – the City Rail Link.

The museum would like to acknowledge MOTAT volunteer Richard Croker for his generosity in donating the artworks. This is the first time an original rendering has been on display since Jackson created the works in 1974. 

The Walsh Memorial Library is located at MOTAT 1 on Great North road. Open hours are Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm.

Normal MOTAT admission fees apply.

Innovation at the Intersection of Design, Technology and Medicine

The voxel is a basic unit for 3D printing multiple materials. Similar to how pixels are organized on digital display screens, voxels can be placed in different patterns to control how a 3D printed object will behave. This level of control, alongside powerful data sets and innovative technology systems, has the potential to change the landscape of 3D printing. Combining the voxel level print details, with the sharing of anatomical data sets in a collaborative way affords new opportunities for collaboration between design and medicine within the field of orthotic care.

Creating Value from Emerging Innovation

This is the premise laid forth by Voxel Harvest, a design and manufacturing research venture emerging from the Singapore University of Technology and Design  started by Professor Sayjel Vijay Patel and Architect Nathan Kiatkulpiboone. Voxel Harvest introduces a new manufacturing platform to support multi-disciplinary data-sharing and design collaboration with the SUTD Digital Manufacturing and Design Center. Using authored and automated image data-sets, this system allows teams to create custom orthotic devices with high-resolution textures and micro-structures, opening up a whole new world of orthotic care possibilities specific to patient needs.

Three-dimensional texture and material programming of voxels for the Stratasys J750.

Voxel Harvest’s meta-material programming capabilities open the door for new and unique bio-medical and wearable design. By programming voxel data sets, a user can add microscopic features that help control pressure and temperature. As a proof of concept,Voxel Harvest was used to design a custom orthotic device to treat a foot injury using compression and temperature control.

Detail of embedded microstructure programmed to accommodate pressure points

Using textured structures to act as a second skin, micro-structures to control elasticity and durability and fluidics to modulate temperature and material expansion, this new technology could enhance patient treatment plans by tailoring multifunctional products to their specific needs. To learn more about Voxel Harvest, check out the video below that shares an example of their forward thinking work.

Voxel Harvest: Metamaterial Programming from Nathan K on Vimeo.

Voxel Harvest is the recipient of the 2018 Red Dot Design Award Honorable Mention. The Red Dot Award is an international design competition for product design, communication design and design concepts. Their designs will be on display through 2019 at the Red Dot Design Museum in Singapore.  Sayjel Vijay Patel is currently a Founding Professor at the Dubai Institute of Design and Innovation and Nathan Kiatkupiboone is the Innovation Lead at Blink Design Group. To learn more about their design innovations and their work, follow them on Instagram.

Live at Maker Faire Orlando November 10th-11th

A few of the items that will be on display

This Saturday and Sunday (Nov 10th, 11th 2018), I’ll be displaying at the Orlando Maker Faire at the Central Florida Fairgrounds. I’ll have several old favorites there, including the Strandmaus that I just tested and found that it still does walk quite well. Addtionally, you may notice the ‘bot below from it’s rocket launching video or even its recent feature in Hackspace Magazine issue #10.

For better or worse I don’t plan to power it up or launch rockets out of its tubes there, but it’s less likely that you recognize the disk-shaped robot thing its riding on. I plan to have it powered up in a demo mode for the show, and hopefully will be putting a video out about it Tuesday. So be sure to stop by, and if you can’t make it and are just curious about what looks like a WWII-era Roomba, check out and please subscribe to my YouTube channel!

Oh, and I’ll have stickers and buttons available for $0 for as long as they last, or you can buy 2 stickers from Tindie for $2.00 here.

The @Enscape3d 2.4 update Web Standalone is stunning

I got a chance to try the latest Enscape3D 2.4 update Web Standalone sharing feature this evening and was very impressed. It offers a no plug-in model interaction very similar to the full desktop Enscape application or the previous .exe packages. The big advantage is “no install” as although the package.exe’s worked well many environments prevent use of them. Creating the export is, typically Enscape, a simple button click and short wait (impressively short) while the model uploads. All the assets in the Revit file transfer so no concerns about losing custom materials etc.

The browser does have to be WebGL capable (so Chrome) and, here's where the tweaking comes in, will use whatever hardware the machine can offer. I tried it on a modest HP Compact running a 70 inch Sharp Touchscreen at work and it was ok, although a more powerful machine would be better. On my Surface Book 2 even with the Chrome>Advanced>System>Use Hardware Acceleration when available setting enabled Chrome only used the integrated graphics in the Clipboard Tablet. It runs Intel UHD 620, like many standard laptops, and was a bit choppy while fly/walk navigating but still very useable.

Enscape_SB2_Chrome_Settings

I had to go to Control Panel>Graphics Settings and force Chrome.exe to run in High Performance mode to get the best from the hardware.

Enscape_SB2_Chrome_Graphics

Enscape_SB2_Chrome

That done, after a browser restart, the model responsiveness transformed for both rendering (of lighting changes) and fly/walk navigation. Task Manager confirmed the Book 2’s Nvidia GTX 1060 was doing its thing, soon further confirmed by the hiss of cooling fans spinning up!

When it comes to laser cutting, plastic is soooo fantastic. But…it’s not so environmentally friendly. For those who want to build electronics enclosures or design jewelry out of acrylic because of the material’s aesthetic appeal and huge color selection, there hasn’t been an alternative. Until now.

Introducing recycled acrylic.

Yep, you read that right. Recycled acrylic is now available in the USA catalog and awaiting your creativity to bring it to life.

AM in Formula One

Note: Research associate Ray Huff authored the following.

Two weeks ago, I attended the Circuit of the Americas Formula One race near Austin, Texas. I was a guest of Additive Industries, along with the Sauber Alfa Romeo team, for practice day at the track. The day was rainy, but spirits were high, and we enjoyed the spectacle of heavily-engineered race cars burning down the track at speeds of more than 322 km (200 miles) per hour.

We watched the race from the Paddock Club, an incredible location just above the garages. At midday, we toured the pits and watched the premier teams conducting pit stop practice, vehicle maintenance, and inspection. The greatest treat of all was to meet Charles Leclerc and Marcus Ericsson, drivers of the Sauber team. The two young men were charming, amicable, and laser-focused on their task when it was race time.

Formula One is an amazing use case for AM. Each car is effectively a custom product, with a new design each year. Performance is the number one priority, with an emphasis on stiffness and weight. The cars and drivers are supported by teams of hundreds of engineers, mechanics, and others. Team budgets famously soar in the range of hundreds of millions of dollars. Each F1 team is allowed to bring a maximum of 60 crew members on race day at each of their 21 races throughout the year. I was completely inspired and impressed at the amount of engineering involved in this sport, and look forward to more races in the future.

Flickr to limit free users to 1000 images

I wondered what change in ownership (earlier this year from Yahoo to SmugMug) might mean for Flickr and today noticed they are rejigging their free/pro user levels. Free users will soon be limited 1,000 photos, a few less than the 25,000 I have added there since 2005…

I had Pro membership free for years, via an historic Telecom/Spark NZ Yahoo link, but reverted to free a couple years ago when they parted ways. The big advantage of Flickr, back in the day, was unlimited full resolution storage of photos when most other cloud services reduced resolution (like some still do), had low limits, or both (ironic eh!).

I’ll revive my Pro membership (us$50 – 30% first year), mainly as I have lots of Flickr images linked to my blog!
