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 different forms of fabrication techniques are subtractive, additive and formative. Subtractive invovles removing parts of a whole through shaving down and surface, additive is the building up of a shape in layers, farmative invovles shaping heat softened materials into a mold.

Week Three

Surface Creation

I search for the two surfaces which is one of them is flexural and another one is more flat. I hope two surfaces are not intersectiong because two surfaces are prepare for the waffle structure.

Week Four Panels & Waffle

2D paneling texture is more complex than 3D paneling texture. The area of paneling is not very big and considering about the thickness of cutting board, I made a simple 3D panel.

My waffle structure is a really common one. There is a slightly bend on the surface.

Week Four

Laser Cutting

Firstly, I use command â&#x20AC;&#x153;unroll surfaceâ&#x20AC;? to made 3D model become 2D one and then add taps on them to make them easy to glue. I divide them as two of them in a group or one of them in a group to keep the bendind when they become 3D. When I put them together, the sequnence of them is the same as the sequence in reality.

Week Five

In the workshop, tutor use sphere as example to made the madel and I change them wirh a more complex pattern. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the mesh inside over the boundry of box since I hope 9 of them can be cut inside and made a cool shape inside.

Week Five

Isometric

When choosing 1/8 part of whole modle, I just found which part was cut the most and the edge is not too thin because the edge has the function of support.
