Digital Design - Module 02 Semester 1, 2018 Tianlin Wang (857847) HanLi + 16

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)

Subtractive:involves the removal of a specified volume of material from solids. Additive:involves incremental forming by adding materil ina layer by layer fashion,converse of milling. Formative:mechanical forces,restricting forms,heat or steam are applied to the material to formed the shape.

Week Three Surface Creation

Week Four Panels & Waffle

Half solid half perforation used to guide sun path. light only entry into perforation so boundary of light and shadow formed. Solid panels are used to distinguish two mirrored panels. light has been resist, shadow formed obviously.

4

The waffls and panles all created in symmetrical.One side of the bottom of waffle changed from narrow to wide and the other side is adversed.

Week Four

Laser Cutting

For panel i used dark green to show the cutline and lighter green for etched. I tried to unrollsrf several joined panel but i could only unrollsrf three of them, or the line will overlapped. Also when i doing the unrollsrf, all of the surfaces had some tiny gap. Only at 0.2mm long. I think this may because the surface of my 3D panel was not flat. So i rebuilt these error lines by myself , i scaled and rotated these line to make sure there was no gap.

Week Five

The first and second module were combined and formed the third one. The third module is sphere+polygon. The fourth one is donut shaped +polygon.

6

Week Five

Isometric

This is the most interesting boolen module in my work.It contains both polygon and donut shape.I use dash line to represent the hidden structure.When donut has been booleanced, i used them as pipes. The open space such like the cut polygon and the entrance of pipes represents porosity. I imagine them as thresholds since they connect interior and outside space.Sun light also entry from those opening. The new space after boolean is not only on surface. I used long pipe to get through from head to bottom, connect the other geometry in gentle way,which can represent as permeability. For this curves VS. straight lines module, i imagine it as a building with the scale at1:300. The interior booleaned polygons are lobby to contain people. Since these lobbies are sealed by the solid, the i used the booleaned donuts as tunnels, and the opening space of tunnels are thresholds which connect interior lobby and exterior space outside the module. The pipes are only connected to polygons, so people can not cross between two tunnels directly.

Task 01 Matrix I use different isometric view for the whole matrix. Every surface is different some has twist some have intersection so i tried to figure out the best view for each surface to show more details. The first three line are the panels i used in module. I use NE and SE to clearly show all the two sides.For 3.2 and 3.3 i use opposite direction of view beacuse i use mirrored panel which are similar so opposite view can show the two not mirrored panel obviously.

Task 02 Matrix I use NE as my iso view which is visualized. I use both random attractor and point attractor.For the first three grid and centroids i thought they are too dramatic, so i chose the last one which is much more normal but regular and in perfect order. After i created the donut shaped in grasshopper, i baked them and move them into different direction and dimensionality. I also scealed it to form different size and radius. So this boolean solid is not that “regular”.These variaty donuts were put in 3.4 matrix to form the final work. ‘

Final Isometric Views Paneling

3.2

For Task 2, i put the whole boolean solid for final isometric view. I separate the whole solid into three pieces this means these are two important cutline. I change the isometric view so the final print piece is nearest and with more details whith are different from week5 isometric. Dash lines represent hidden interior space. Full lines represent visible part, and isocurve for the pipes.

Appendix

Process

Two surface and its panels. To stick panels, i use UHU and use clamps to fix the taps. UHU is strong glue for paper, the use of clamps can svae time so no more pinch taps by hands.

11

Appendix Process

I careful stick the edges of the panels and waffle. I hide the taps inside the panel so no exposure of tabs. To fix the waffle structure i also smear glue on the sturcture, so when stick on the panels, the waffle would not fall apart.

Process

The light enrty the thresholds(the open space of pipe and polygon) to form shadow in the lobby(interior space of polygon).

Design Matrix 1:5

The whole module is thinking as a building.

This is a large open space formed by geometry intersections. This space has wide exterior space and small threshold which connected exterior and interior.

The opeaning of the tunnels on the surfaces formed the sence of limited since twisted structure.

The geometry inside the solid used to be dark. The added tunnels and the threshold give the path for light to entry

The geometry intersect with the surface with tiny space formed a shallow and circular space.

The pipes connect the geometry which is isolated. People can get into the hall through the tunnels. Every tunnel is individule, no connection between them but people still can entry every hall by different tunnels free.

No objects should be lower than this line.
