I’m interested in developing this into an operable louver system that can be changed from transparent to translucent. I would ideally like it to attach to a window. But if I were to use a light fixture I would use 150-watt bulbrite linear fluorescents.

pseudo-script:

make locators

make array of points

make array of lines from points

find relationships between lines and locators

make planar surfaces (louvers) according to relationships to locators

make array of points based on locations and sizes of louvers

make array of lines based on those points

make array of planar surfaces (connectors, to connect the louvers) from those lines

find the intersections between the louvers and the connectors

alter the shapes of the two to accommodate the fit

lay out the pieces for laser cutting
