In phase two the research turned towards 3-dimensionality. With these tests the focal point is on controlling the final form through the alteration of cell geometry.  We had begun to research auxetic patterns because of their ability to form geometries contrary to the forces applied.

The prints were subjected to gravity by hanging them from wooden frames allowing for the relaxation under the weight of concrete. PETG, PolyCarbonate, and PLA were tested as the print material. On the whole the tests were to strong and did not exhibit the slumping hoped for although the patterns are a quite striking.
