The decision fell on draft 2. So the following time I spend trying to optimize the spheres and lattice curve for Additive Manufacturing. When the decision fell on the material Aluminum I increased the overall thickness to give it a valuable weight.
While playing with the shape of the curve, to give it a holistic look, especially from the front view, I noticed a known look. It kept me reminding of the bottom shape of a cursive L. Since this Award is presenting Leadership, I used the waves of a cursive L to create a bridge between the traditional roles and perspecitves of Leadership during history to the modern view of leadership, in this case leading an international Additive Manufacturing company.
Once the design was ready for Additive Manufacturing, it was produced by PROTIQ GmbH on an EOS M290 in AlSi10Mg and polished by hand.
