title Machinic Morphospaces: Biomimetic Design Strategies for the Computational Exploration of Robot Constraint Spaces for Wood Fabrication
source ACADIA 12: Synthetic Digital Ecologies [Proceedings of the 32nd Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-1-62407-267-3] San Francisco 18-21 October, 2012), pp. 157-168
summary The paper presents research into computational design processes that integrate not only criteria of physical producibility but also characteristics of design intelligence and performance. In the first part, the use of an industrial robot’s design space for developing differentiated finger joint connections for planar sheets of plywood is being introduced. Subsequently, biomimetics is proposed as a filter for the possible geometric differentiations with respect performative capacities. The second part focuses on the integration of fabricational and biomimetic principles with structural and architectural demands, as well as by the development of a custom digital data structure for the fabrication of finger joint plate structures resulting in the construction of a full scale prototype. The paper concludes with evaluating the tolerances inherent in construction through 3D laser scan validation of the physical model.
