Spider Web

I do think spiders have a design sense. Spider web is an exquisite piece. In this project, I tried to use a glue model to simulate the process of building a spider web.

Macro Process

At the macro level, I used fishline to explore the structural properties of spider webs.Orb webs consist of two kinds of threads: radial threads radiate out from the center of the web, while spiral threads connect the radial threads together to form the familiar circular pattern.

Micro Process

Spider silk is a liquid wire. In the micro-level, I used glue to stimulate the process of aggregating
