Using Blender to Emulate a Graphene Battery

The process & explanation of making a 3-D model of a graphene vibration energy harvester

First of all, what is graphene?

The Vibration Energy Harvester: A Brief Intro

Visual representation of how the v.e.h. would have worked (also my inspiration for this!!)

The Model

Initial shape to build up graphene model
The making of the digital sheet of graphene
(almost) final product
