Advanced parametric design course – parametric structures

As a preparation and tests for upcoming Advanced Parametric Design workshops planned for July we tested digital fabrication techniques on a model of the pavillion, which was built by students from research group LabDigiFab. The object was designed with use of methods which will be widely used during the event, which will include dynamic relaxation and self-organization in Processing programming environment.

First experiments involved generating bspline surfaces and converting them to point clouds, which were acting as ‘canvas’ for placement of nodes, which were then displaced dynamically, so distances between them get normalized (become as similar as possible). It was discovered that this technique gives very nice results and topology of nodes and connections can be written to file as optimized mesh.

At next stage model was rebuilt from saved topology in  Generative Components nvironment (importing of such spatial structures to GC will also be featured in upcoming workshops), and then enriched by very detailed geometrical representation of each node and connection. Finally, the elements were laid out flat and prepared for digital fabrication on CNC machine.

Prototype in 1:5 can be seen on the photos attached. Full scale model, measuring approximately 4x4x2.5m will be assembled during paraometric design workshop in Wrocław this June – if you are interested in these techniques, join us!

(in addition there will be plenty of other techniques featured, such as genetic algorithms, non-linear optimization of structures, biomorphic and generative design techniques and other alternative methods of generating geometry)

    After I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked
    on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever
    a comment is added I receive four emails with the exact same comment.
    There has to be an easy method you can remove me from that service?
