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. Subtractive tecniqueincludes remove parts of a whole structure, through the surface and cutting off. Laser cutting does thing like that. 2. Additives techique is to build a shape into a layer, for example 3D printing. 3. Formative includes using Computer Numeric Controlled machinert to put material in place and reshape it, which solves the problem of complex shape. Computer Numeric Controlled fabrication is now vert useful and popular in the industryand designs. It allows to achieve a goal of low cost but efficient result and also for producing more complex designs. Paramatric modelling requires manyiterationa and varations. Thus, by using CNC fabrication can directly reads the requirement, for next step fab.

Week Three

Surface Creation

Left: Triangle breb. Right: Two triangle as a brep which is the development of the left. Left down: Trapezoid - shaped brep. Right down: Rotating the upper triangle as a diamond which looks more interesting. Top: The final surface script is made by two triangle as a brep using weavebird to be hollow.

3

Week Four Panels & Waffle

The larger and more straight surface indicates the stretch of the surface and the other one shows the compression. The pannels follow the rule: the centre panel of the front one is lager and the edge panel is small and towards outside; the back one, the panels compress towards the centre

The hollow waffle structure shows the degree of the curve.

Week Four

Laser Cutting

For the 290gsm ivory card lazer cutting (the pannel), the surface should be meshed first and then â€œmeshtonurbâ€œ, which is for the unrolling the surface. For the 1mm mount board, which is the structure, using rectangle, tag and orientation in grasshopper. The label is important. The etch part and the cut part should be separated into different level and colour.

Week Five

Developed From Sphere to one other geometry and then the four lunchbox geometry.

Week Five

Isometric

Insert a brief description of your isometric here. Comment on the process of choosing which iteration to develop and 3D Print. What are some of the spacial qualities of your model? How does it address porosity and permeability? The inside volume made by four grometry provided by lunchbox to show the variation. The outside view can be seen from the inside volume and the circulation is according to the interaction

Design Matrix 1:5

The surface is bigger and more straight than the other, it stretches into four vertex of the surface and the other surface compresses to the center.

Task 01 Matrix

The iteration developed from the 2D rectangle and the simple triangle into complex trapezoid shape and hollow two trianles, which shows the viaration and intersting.
