Bryan Copperthite from Grace Community Church in Fulton, MD brings us this awesome 3D, three pointed modular system.
This concept was inspired by the amazing wall built by The Rock Family Worship Center back in 2013.
They decided to take the concept and turn it into mountains of sorts.
– 20-25 4mm 4’x8′ Coroplast Sheets, mostly gray with a few white cut into 8 equal triangles
– 20 rolls of extra wide Gorilla tape
– Wire rope
– 50′ unistrut
– 6 10′ all thread rods to hang from pipe grid at ceiling
They first had a local woodworker cut the Coroplast sheets into triangles. He used a programmable cutting machine, but a circular saw would do. The triangles were then laid out flat, spaced 1/2″ on each side, and then taped with small pieces at each intersection to hold it together. They used the Gorilla tape to tape all the edges a few rows at a time, turned it over at strategic stages and taped the back side. Note: use a piece of plywood or something of the sort to walk on it!
Once it was done being taped, it was incredibly easy to fold. They laid out the 50′ of unistrut above the peaks, joined the pieces together, and then connected it to the set using wire ropes and grommets. They lifted it using a lift and some manpower with ropes. The unistrut was connected to the ceiling with the all thread rods.
They hung it about 1/2′ to 1′ lower than it would be flat to allow them to mold the slack to give them the desired 3D effect.
Ended up 52′ across and 18′ at the highest peaks.
