I drew few sketches before start my project, I finally decided to make a constructed waterfall.
I made few plans and made some paper models to see if my idea is possible.
I wanted to make my waterfall just using trainangles
But my idea is to complicated to finish
Then I simplified my traingleses
but the result is not that attractive, therefore, I totally changed my mind, and construct my model like constructing an architecture using tetrahedrons and polygons.
I calculate all datas, and made my paper model
I wanted to show the flow and the transparency of water, so I decided to use plastic and metal as my materials.
I once tried to make my transparent part in one part, but I failed for two times, so I still make these polyhedrons separately.
Then I made the metal parts.
I combined these two parts together.
(I also add stones at the bottom, in order to make my models stands on their own)
I sanding the metal to simulate the texture of water, and make it can reflect light from different directions.
Here is my final work.
and audiences can play with it.
