Abstract:The aim of this bachelorassignment concerns designing a sepertion wall with 3D textile. The companies that deliver the 3D materials and technics are: Ames Europe, Bonar, Campo Coprint and Lankhorst. One of the materials is Pure. It is a strong and lightweight material. Another material is a Spacer Knit. It is made by Ames Europe. This knitting is translucent and can let air through. This material can be fabricated with a lot of different knitting patterns and with different thickness. The third material, Enkamat, is fabricated by Bonar and has special characteristics. Only ten percent of the structure is made of solid material and it can be fabricated with all kinds of colors. The printing technique from Campo Coprint can be used to finish the design. The main requirement for this project is to use at least two of thes materials in the design of the seperation wall. This design report is seperated into two parts, the analysis and the design part. Further research about textile and seperation walls in general is done in the first part. Also the environment of the wall was elaborated. One environment is an office space where Het Nieuwe Werken is implementated. These work spaces are flexible and they require flexible furniture. The conclusion of the analysis is an list of requirements. The most important is the limitation of sight and noise. De wall has to have the ability to adapt the visual privacy. Different ideas for a wall design were generated. Six concept versions had put together and were detailed on their design and construction. The six concepts were elaluated with the list of requirements and a final concept was chosen. This concept is furter elaborated. The construction of the wall was tested with a dummy. The concept was modelled in Solid Works to give a clear view of the actual model. A material and manufacture process were selected for each part. Afterwards a costanalysis was made and the selling price of the wall was calculated. The result of this project is a seperation wall made of wood, Pure and knitting. The knitting is cutted in long pieces that are pressed together on two sides with two sheets of Pure. The frame is made of pine wood. The wall can be adjust into two positions. In the first position the knitting can be curved by pressing against the fabric. Each piece of knitting can be curved alternate so the view through the wall will be better. The second position will stretch the knitting till the bottom of the frame. The view and noise will be restricted. Projections can be made on the fabric with a beamer. It is also possible to print a color or an image on the knitting. An other option is to build-in LEDlights between the lower sheets of Pure to light up the knitting.
