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 methods, additive methods and Transformative methods are the three fundamental techniques which Kolerevic described. Laser cutting and Computer Numeric Controlled milling are subtractive fabrication techenique, which normally use 3-5 axes in a file and can specific control one object. 3d printing is an eaxmple of this techenique, when we focus on the left side of the makebot file, we can easily find the 3D model is controlled in three different axes--X, Y, Z. Transformative methods is to change a trhings not to build sonething which is highly used in some overlapped/ doubbled forms. Computer Numeric Controlled fabrication does very well in parametric modelling for the reason that it is good at doing complex modelling like double-curved forms.

Week Three

Surface Creation

The first surface and the last one show the contrast between the twist surfaces and the flat surfaces. Due to the module one----Zaha Pavilion, the concept of the circulation and the threshold, the first one is more fitted with the main idea. The second one represents two different sized surfaces twist with each other which give the sence of two people hug.. The third one has a surface intercestion, I make the base las triangle which is more stable than quadrangle.

Week Four Panels & Waffle

Surface on the left has change in the height of each panel which is increased up the surface, Also, the size in the openings on the panels becoming smaller when surface going down.

The waffle is a conmination of three parts, longitude quadrangle, two latitude strios. The waffle have one large opening and one small opening which can give thesimilar sence of threshold with Zaha.

Surface on the right is pyramid panels which all have hollow triangles in each peace of surface.

Week Four

Laser Cutting

This is so easy to get sth. wrong in Grasshopper, in my process of making the waffle, command negative is really hard to be cleared for me. The process of unroll 3D panels are similar to the M3 in fodr, but when I first unrolled the two different panels, one of the panel does not fit the waffle which should be mirrored.

Week Five

when the section line changed, the diagrams that produced in the model will change, the four diagrams above produces different incisions. At first, use the 3x3 grid to make the 3x3x3 cubes, combined three group of those cubes, then rotate the cube in different angles seperately to achieve the booleanunion structure._

Week Five

Isometric

When I finished making the cube, I strated to choose which part shoule be 3Dprinted. The reason why I choose this part is because I consider the width of each side of the model and the relationship betwee the nearby parts. This one donâ€™t have sharp peaces which is less than 1mm and all aurfaces can be supported well by adjacent parts.

Design Matrix: 1:3

Task 01 Matrix In this part, mainly consider about the third row of the matrix. the first diagram shows the contrast between diamond and cube panels. the second diagram give the contrast between the pyramids with/without hollow triangles, I chose with hollow triangles because that can allow light going through the opening to the waffle. the thied diagram shows the contrast betwwn the panels with/without flow changes. I chose have flow changes brcause people can going throught the space and see different views from several sizes of openings.

Design Matrix: 1:4

Task 02 Matrix in this matrix, mainly concerned about the third row the first diagram shows the two group of cubes overlapped and the cubed in each group rotated in random angles. the second diagram also have two group of cubes but each group rotated rotated in same angles. the third and the forth matrix are similar to the first and the second, the difference between them is the munber of group of cubes become three. each different overlapping can give several openings which can achieve different shadows when sunlight going through.
