Sneak Peek: Rotating Curtain Panels

Here is a quick view of a pretty cool parametric curtain wall system I created.  The system allows each panel to be adjusted independently to create a design, and then rotated all at once to create an animated effect. I plan on breaking down how it was created in a future post, but for now a few images to get a taste of what is to come.

Curtain Panels all set at 0º
Curtain Panels all set at 45º

Curtain Panels set at 10º intervals in different patterns

Curtain Panels set at 20º intervals in different patterns

Note: These GIFs were created by exporting each frame (adjusting the rotation) then animating in Photoshop

6' Panels 5º intervals vertical pattern

3' Panels 5º intervals diagonal pattern (low res.)
Close up: 3' Panels 15º intervals diagonal pattern

3' Panels 10º intervals alternating vertical pattern
