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 fabrication is the process of removing a specified volume of material from a solid. This is done through electro-reductive, chemically-reductive or mechanically reductive processes. Additive fabrication involves the incremental forming through adding material layer-by-layer. The digital model is sliced into two-dimensional layers and the information is transferred to the processing head of the manufacturing machine. The final method of fabrication discussed by Kolerevic is formative fabrication. In this method mechanical forces, restrictive forms, heat or steam are applied to a material to mold it into the desired shape. These methods of production allow complex forms created with parametric modelling to be fabricated accurately and efficiently.

Week Three

Surface Creation

I wanted my two panels to interact with each other in a way that made them look like two parts of a unified whole. Clockwise from left: Surface script #1, surface iteration 1 (selected surfaces), surface iteration 2, surface iteration 3, surface iteration 3.

Week Four Panels & Waffle

I used the surface iteration to inform my panel design. The more distorted panel seemed like an appropriate “front� for the design. I then decided to focus on the panels on this surface by using more complex weaverbird commands and curve attractors.

The waffle structure for my surfaces was fairly straightforward to create. For future experimentation it would be interesting to test the amount of structure required to support the panels.

Laser Cutting

600.00

600.00

I had several issues with my laser cutting file including overlapping lines and unjoined elements. For future laser cutting files I would consider changing several things including adding labels for the panelling as well as not creating tabs 1mm wide. There were also several fold lines on the cut layer which required mending.

Week Five

I wanted to explore the effect of overlapping geometry in the boolean forms. Clockwise from left: The splitting of the boolean script for the application of different geometry, iteration 1 (the final iteration), iteration 2, iteration 3, iteration 4.

Week Five

Isometric

My fragment employs cubes, spheres and tetrahedrons of varying shapes to create abstracted spaces. I wanted to explore the movement from circular spaces to more angled spaces. Each space in the fragment is unique meaning the circulation through the fragment is extremely varied. The differing sizes of opening causes the fragment to be approached differently from each face.

Task 01 Matrix I chose this iteration as I thought the contrast between the pictureframe panels and closed triangular prism panels was interesting. I also liked how the surfaces interacted while still appearing to have a strong base.
