summary The application of Computer Aided Design has been fragmented so far due to the lack of standards at the hardware and basic software level. The most impressive products have been turn-key systems using custom-built hardware with large software suites developed over a number of years. Such systems have often been difficult to modify and maintain. The very nature of such systems is that they are expensive to produce, have a limited market and, consequently, are expensive. Hardware and software advances over the last few years point to a change in this environment. The trend is towards hardware and software compatibility from the computer suppliers allowing software suppliers to target their offerings at a wider range of products. This produces a competitive market and the downward trend in hardware costs gives the possibility for systems of much lower cost and, consequently, opens up the market to a larger customer base. This paper will concentrate on the developments in single user workstations and graphics standards which should provide a firm base for this new environment.

title Adaptive Growth Using Robotic Fabrication
source Open Systems: Proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2013) / Singapore 15-18 May 2013, pp. 65-74
summary This paper studies computational methods for adaptive growth seen in human design processes, such as development of spontaneous settlements, by highlighting the contrast with conventional plan execution approaches. The paper speculates as to the possibilities of open frameworks for design using computational methods through a relatively simple yet explicit example in the context of robotic fabrication. The proposed experiment uses an industrial robot arm to pro-duce structures by stacking unit bricks without hard-coded instructions (“blueprints”) from the outset. The paper further speculates about how such implementations can be applied to architectural design.

title Edition-Oriented 3D Model Rebuilt from Photography
source Living Systems and Micro-Utopias: Towards Continuous Designing, Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2016) / Melbourne 30 March–2 April 2016, pp. 445-454
summary The topic of this paper is about a technique to turn pictures into an intuitively modifiable 3D model. The research employs an analytical method using algorithms to conceptualise and digital- ise architectural spaces in order to highlight parametric shapes. Usual- ly, from one group of digital photos, photogrammetry techniques pro- duce a 3D-model mesh through a high-density 3D point cloud. This discordance between our intuitive partitioning of the mesh and its bare polygonal structure makes it interact poorly compared to the af- fordance of shape and component in our daily experience. Through a capture device, a visualisation of architecture in a digital data form is produced. They are processed by computer vision algorithms and ma- chine learning systems in order to be refined into a parametric model. Parametric elements can be described as a compound of formulas and parameters. By keeping the formula and changing the parameters, the- se elements can be easily modified in a range of likenesses. After be- ing detected during scans, these shapes can be adapted to fit the inten- tion of the designer during the design phase.
