New Fabrications for Architecture The Euclid robot and Ron 2.0 make their first 3D printed object. This was just a simple test print on the Euclid robot now that it is fully up and running, but it came out better than I was expecting. This whole layer based printing business is pretty easy. The details: It is printed with ABS plastic,size is 12 inches tall and 5x5 inches in plan.

ARCH 598 Summer 2011information >> n-formations FABRICS // LATTICES // FIELDSThis course is designed to introduce and explore computational design, algorithmic thinking, and digital manufacturing–both: the larger ramifications that emerging digital technologies and ideas are having architectural theory via readings, discussions, presentations; and the practical application of these ideas and tools through a series of hands-on, iterative modeling and fabrication assignments.

GRASSHOPPER TUTORIALS + EXERCISES The exercises below test basic competence using Grasshopper. Attempt to complete the exercises and if you need extra help refer to the tutorial PDFs. This tutorial introduces students to the workflow of Grasshopper by creating a simple definition that takes a reference direction from input curves and re-orients them to face an attractor point. This tutorial extends upon tutorial 01 by creating a simple definition that analyses the curvature of a doubly curved surface and indicates how this could be further extended to manipulate material qualities to achieve complex double curvature from perforations in a flat sheet.

The extremely modest and simple materiality: marble, coated steel, fair-fared concrete, glass. Light creates the atmosphere in the Room of Christ; in the middle top light falls down from the column heads, vertically highlighting the slender columns. The enclosing surface, 11 mm glass panes in combination with 10 mm finely cut, crystalline marble from the Greek island Naxos, is a single-shell construction. Its vivid translucence influences the room atmosphere in such a way, that the space remains contemplative-introverted despite the intensive lighting.

Owen Architects - Online Professional Portfolio Southern facade of a project using a mechanical iris system for light regulation. Prefabricated Mechanical Iris panels. We have included the files you will need to create your own mechanical iris. We used 5mm plexiglass for the body and .5mm sheets for the bleades (make sure the material you use for the blades is thin enough to fit between the outer body which will be determined by the material thickness that you buy).

Grasshopper (Explicit History) Same Area Voronoi using Galapagos I have been quite fascinated by the recent development of Galapagos for Grasshopper. This is a simple example of its application set up to solve for a 10-point voronoi division within a user-defined boundary where all the parts are divided as equally as possible in terms of their areas.
