title Lucid Foam - Multi-Axis Robotic Hot-Wire Cutting for Translucency
source Odysseas Kontovourkis (ed.), Sustainable Computational Workflows [6th eCAADe Regional International Workshop Proceedings / ISBN 9789491207143], Department of Architecture, University of Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprus, 24-25 May 2018, pp. 123-130
keywords Hotwire cutting of Styrofoam or Polystyrene has been a popular tool for developing fast prototypes by the architectural community. The introduction of multi-axis industrial robots in the architectural curriculum, and the enhancement of the design to fabrication process by software bridging the gap, provided an alternative meaning to the traditional mostly representational process of hotwire cutting.This paper sets out to document and assess the procedural methodology and the results of a series of integrated design to fabrication experiments that took place in the Institut für Experimentelle Architektur-Hochbau. By channelling design intention towards a component assembly for a translucent effect, students were asked to utilise industrial robots to fabricate and prototype via hotwire cutting, designs that refer to architectural elements. These elements, mainly due to their scale and the commercial availability of bulk Styrofoam panels, can lead to functional or ornamental representations of discrete elements, which can be assembled together as part of a greater design.
