Digital Design - Module 02 Semester 1, 2018 Zhangzhuo Cheng (900410) Xiaoran Huang + Studio 8

Week Three

Reading: Kolerevic B. 2003. Architecture in the Digital Age

Kolerevic described three fundamental type of fabrication techniques in the reading. Outline the three techniques and discuss the potential of Computer Numeric Controlled fabrication with parametric modelling. (150 words max)

1. Additive fabrication is about adding layers of material upon one another which is a class of manufacturing processes. 2. Subtractive fabrication is a techniques that include drilling, turning on a lathe and grinding that decrease a solid block of metal or other material. 3.Formative : re-construct/re-shaping existing object through techniques such as molding, heating.

Week Three

Surface Creation

Grasshopper script: surfaces lofted through selection of divisions along edge of 150*150*150 cube.

3

Week Four Panels & Waffle

The left surface consists of 3D panles which are three different triangle panels. And the right surface is composed of hollow circles.

The most interesting of my waffle is one of the surface is screwy which touched the axis of the other surface.

Week Four

Laser Cutting

In this process I learned how to unroll waffle in Grasshopper and how to use laser cuter.

5

Week Five

I backed box and panels and used panels to cut the box. Finally, one eight of the box was printed in 3D.

Week Five

Isometric

The fregment cut from a simple box and was split by polygen. Cutting action creates more useful volumn. Openings divide the part of pavilion into exterior space and interior space, let the light and fresh air in. Interior area is a safe and private area, but it still connect well with out side. The top part was cut also can be used.

Task 01 Matrix In task 1, I learnt how to use grasshopper to create surface and how do attractor point work. In the final task 1 module, and changed their sizes. Solid panels seperate outdoor and indoor. Protruding forms create interest through light and shadow. Opening on the surface allows light enter the volume, also can be defined as a ventilation wall. Screwy surface increase volume atthe bottom. A hollow waffle structure allows for the creation of an interior volume.
