Apparatus for material testing

Let’s begin with building up an apparatus for material test as image below. Suggested dimension for the apparatus is 50 x 50 x 50. Note that there are punched holes on the sub-structure of the appartus which acts as anchor points for the material. Changing position of anchor points and tension force will allow one to generate different forms. Every step of exploration should be diagrammed and recorded. It will give you basic understanding of how the form is generated through equilibrium between external and internal force.
