title Development of A Kinematic Physical Model for Building Volume Simulation
source Emerging Experience in Past, Present and Future of Digital Architecture, Proceedings of the 20th International Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2015) / Daegu 20-22 May 2015, pp. 241-250
summary Both a physical model and VR are three-dimensional expression tools to enable intuitive understanding; however, both have pros and cons. Thus, this research took up the challenge of developing a kinematic physical model system for volume simulation of buildings or a city by using a physical model and VR data integrally. The developed system consists both of hardware which packed 105 lifting rods into a grid (the height of the rods could be changed individually by stepper motors) and of software which calculated the height of each rod from the VR data and lifted the rods. Through conducting verification experiments on the prototype system, a physical urban model could be produced in about two minutes, within acceptable error limits. In conclusion, the proposed method was evaluated as feasible and effective.
