summary The digital fabrication of monolithic shell structures is presenting some challenges related to the interface between computational design and fabrication techniques, such as the methods chosen for the suitable parametrization of the geometry based on materiality characteristics and construction constrains, the digital optimization criteria of variables, and the translation of the relevant code used for digital fabrication. Specifically, the translation from the digital to the physical when a definite materiality appears during the digital fabrication process proves to be a crucial step, which is typically approached as a linear and predetermined sequence. This often-difficult step offers the potential of embedding a certain level of interactivity between the fabricator and the materialized model during the fabrication process in order to allow for real time adjustments or corrections. This paper features monolithic shell construction processes that promote a simple interface of live interaction between the fabricator and the tool control during the digital fabrication process. The implementation of novel digital and physical methods will be explored, offering the possibility of being combined with automated fabrication actions controlled by real time inputs with virtual reality [VR] influenced by 3d scanning and 3d CAD programs, and the possibility of incorporating augmented reality [AR].
