Made from plywood and fabric, this shelter is able to fold in an accordion-like fashion, to be completely flat. While in this collapsed position, the shelter can easily be carried by one person.
To create this shelter, digital design and fabrication process were utilized. The shelter first 3d modeled in Rhino, and later pieces were CNC milled from tool paths generated using RhinoCAM. The ribs providing the structure of the shelter were CNC milled out of 1/4" plywood, and the outside shell was CNC milled out of fabric using a knife attachment. The fabric was then hand stitched onto the wooden ribs to complete the structure.
