The goal of this machine is to apply load onto big 3d printed pieces in order to understand and test their structural capacity.

The machine was part of IAAC's research program, Open Thesis Fabrication 2016-17, TerraPerforma, which focused on large scale additive manufacturing with uncooked clay.

Step 1: Base Assembly

The machine, is comprised by plannar pieces milled out of 15mm wood.

The base is comprised out of two pieces, nailed together so they form a rigit stucture, with added interior frame, to be able to support the loads

<p>Looks good :)</p>
