3D MOVE Frame Assembly

The carbon fibre and 3D printed framework to support our 3D MOVE (Mobile Visualisation Environment) screens was tested this week to see how easy it was to assemble by two people.

The frame is about 8Kg when assembled, thanks to the adoption of composite carbon fibre tubes and 3D printed brackets. It encompasses a volume of 2.8 x 2.8 x 2.1 meters, which is the same as our existing CAVE in the Visualisation and Immersive Technologies Centre (VIT-C).

The time-lapse video below shows Dr Maxwell Parfitt and Andy Sears (EPSRC Summer Research Placement Student) assembling the 3D MOVE frame for the first time in under 6 minutes.
