Skateboard Tricks Are Transformed Into 3D-Printed Sculptures

Convivial Studio teamed up with Autodesk Pier 9 to capture the motions of skateboarders performing tricks and turn them into 3D-printed sculptures

Experimental design studio Convivial Studio and creative workshop Autodesk Pier 9 worked together on a project to create sculptures based on movement data gathered from skateboarders performing tricks. To capture the movement from start to finish, the team attached a sensor to the bottom of the skateboard against the wheel’s frame, which relayed information to a computer. Since the data was rough, they smoothed out the motions and also added effects around the trick’s trail before developing it into a sculpture.

The completed sculptures looks like numerous 3D-printed spaghetti noodles wrapped around each other in a fluid motion. Convivial Studio posted its entire process from start to finish on Instructables, where they say they want to map larger tricks in the future.
