title 3D Print as Corporeal Design Medium
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 4 - no. 4, pp. 137-152
summary Because it produces representational models, not full-scale architecture, 3D printing often supports the study of form, not architectural materials, structure and tectonics. This research asks how 3D printing can support material study and contribute to a process of design by making, similar to that achieved with mock-ups and other full-scale constructions. It clarifies the nature of design by making through an elaboration of key activities, and then shows how 3D printing can support each activity. The research includes a design experiment in which students used unique 3D printing techniques to enhance the experience of design by making. These techniques include 1) confronting a material foil, 2) embedding material placeholders in parametric models, 3) oscillating between representational and literal interpretations, and 4) using 3D prints as a corporeal medium. With these techniques, 3D printing offered a unique flavor of design by making, which can complement full-scale computer-aided manufacturing techniques.
