Using Fluid Action To Create A Physical Object
How the form of water pouring into a vase translates into an eye-capturing vase.
Designer Fung Kwok Pan’s Fluid Vase translates the fluid action caused by pouring water into a container to create vases of different shapes. A high speed camera captured the actual water motion at different stages of pouring to create a 3D virtual mesh. Via an online interface, customers give their inputs on the design by choosing the speed and volume of water and select a frame from the simulation, before the vase is produced using rapid prototyping techniques.
