title Virtual Forces in Design and Fabrication Process: Assembly and Construction of Physical Prototypes
source Achten, Henri; Pavlicek, Jiri; Hulin, Jaroslav; Matejovska, Dana (eds.), Digital Physicality - Proceedings of the 30th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2 / ISBN 978-9-4912070-3-7, Czech Technical University in Prague, Faculty of Architecture (Czech Republic) 12-14 September 2012, pp. 133-141
summary This paper demonstrates a preliminary research and teaching investigation that attempts to use virtual forces in order to achieve interaction behavior between individual components as mechanism for the development of physical prototypes in various scales. Through case studies, the current research examines possibilities for the design of global systems, structural components and joints aiming to construct prototypes that can be characterized by continuity in their forms, structures and materials. In parallel, a number of questions are raised. Is the process from design to fabrication linear? What can be the relation between digital and physical processes? In which level this integration can be achieved? This work attempts to investigate the application of such methodology, both in design and fabrication, and to examine its contribution in the design and construction process.
