summary This paper is presentation of resulting physical models that were used to explore the relationship between design modeling in CAD and digital fabrication with plywood sheets. We explored a process in making tabletop models with digital fabrication machines and thin plywood sheets. Each was built from combination of predetermined wood joining techniques and structures. These models are believed work as simulation of full scale constructs that inform CAD modeling. Results illustrate the limited potential of parametric modeling and inform fabrication and assembly of design variations.
