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)

The three-techniques are Additive, Subtractive and Formative. Additive involes of building a shape in layers like 3D model, Subtractive involes of removing parts and Formative involes of molding with heated materials.CNC( Computer Numeric Controlled) followed the parameter of the geometry rather then going from points to points making it precise in thickness and accuracy of layers. It is much more faster, easier and can have more free geometric shapes.

Week Three

Surface Creation

By looking at the script it is obvisous that the panel is well tested with different kinds of options. The same script with differnt definitions is used to get different types of panels. The panels that has been observed and tested are shown in small images. In the small images, you can see images with same opening place between panels, but they have different area due to different length in panels. The areas define the waffle structure. Images: Surface Script(Big Images), Iterations Images( Left Top,Right Top, Left Bottom, Right Bottom)

Week Four Panels & Waffle

The diagonal square in the 2D is the direction going upwards. That is also used for the dirction of the 3D , to make them look as if they are meeting. The heights of the 3D increases from the bottom to the top.

The waffle structure has a bit of rotation from the bottom to the top and also similar waffle strcutre inorder just to make things simple as possible.

Week Four

Laser Cutting

The panels have to change from MESH to NURB in order to unroll. After unrolling the surface have to make 2D and then joining them together to get one row for easier laser cutting. The lines color has to be changed inorder for the machine to know which is for etching and cutting, where red is for etching and black is for cutting.

2D panels.

3D panels.

Week Five

The Script that is shown is used for 3D printed Boolean. However, also it was used before to tested out different kinds of pattern inorder to get the perfect pattern that would match with 3D panel. It is better to get tested using -thicknessanalysis using rhino, therefore it can be known whether it can be printed or not. Images: Boolean Script(Big Image), Iterations photo( Top Left,Top Right, Bottom Left, Bottom Right)

Week Five

Isometric

The model is 1/8 of 150x150mm. To achieve the model, two triangles attached back to back is used to get the shape of it to make it similar to the pattern that has been made for 3D panels. To make it works differnt design and patterns have to be tested out to get a printable edges. The machine can only print 1mm thick, therefore it is tested using -thicknessanalysis command in rhino to know whether it can be print or now. To make the model tough, I have made a model edges as thick as I can without chaning the design of it.

The intersection of two 2D panel also create a flower shape.

The intersection of four 3D triangles form into â&#x20AC;&#x153;Houstoniaâ&#x20AC;? flower shape.

Task 01 Matrix I have chosen 3.1 panels and panel design combine with 3.2 panel design. They have similar pattern and combination of 2D and 3D can give a good match. 3D panel has hole in triangle for natural light to go through but it will cover with glass in order to prevent it from rain.

Glass will be used to fit in holes in order to get sunlight and to prevent rain.

Panels increase in height from the bottom to the top.

Task 02 Matrix I have chosen 3.1 boolean design to have a simialar match with my 2D and 3D panel. To give both of my physical model a similar patterns. The rest matrixes are carried out to understand the concept of especially point attractor since it is a major principle I used for my 3D boolean design.
