title The hexEnvelope system: a cross-platform embedding of material and software logic into descriptive geometry
source Synthetic Landscapes [Proceedings of the 25th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Design in Architecture] pp. 518-529
summary This paper follows the technical problematic of the hexEnvelope, a novel system for building complex geometric objects. Operating as a scripted system of parametric operations, and running through multiple 2D, 3D, and fabrication software packages, the hexEnvelope system allows for a highly tectonic assemblage of cellular units. Specific issues addressed within the system include the realization of curved surfaces through flat material, the embedding of fabrication logic and material performance within descriptive geometry, and multiple scales of deployment in terms of their tectonic and material consequence.
