CATERPILLAR TRAIN

MIT Global award winner 2016

Prologue

Caterpillar Train is a concept train designed by Dr Ashwani Kumar and Emil Jacob. It envisages a citywide network of lightweight, elevated train coaches running at about 100 kmph on a track supported by poles bent into arches.

The Ask

The Need was to 3D Print an architectural model to highlight the functionality of this innovative design. The model needed to be precise and accurate to the micron level with no scope for error.

The Gameplan

We decided to model a city intersection and highlight the C Train in practicality along with its Vertical Depot concept. Showcasing a C train stoppage station to represent the applications of this design. Using IOT and 3D Printing created an entire model to bring this concept into the physical realm.
