title Designing Continuous ComplexCurved Structures to be Fabricated from Standard Flat Sheets
source SIGraDi 2005 - [Proceedings of the 9th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Lima - Peru 21-24 november 2005, vol. 1, pp. 114-119
summary This paper explains how complex curved structures can be constructed from flat standard panels. The main objective is to link both design techniques and digital fabrication methods to solve a recurrent problem in contemporary architectural design, building double curved structures. Secondly, it achieves this by using regular fabrication methods and standard construction materials, available and affordable for Latin-American countries. It describes the processes of programming a set of computational tools to study and develop designs to fabricate continuous complex curved structures. I will describe this through a series of experiments, using parametric design environments and scripted routines for CAD software to implement certain techniques to fabricate these designs using rapid prototyping machines. I compare different fabrication methods using computer numerically controlled machines, used to process these flat panels to obtain certain properties, allowing them to bend, twist, fold or stretch achieving these complex forms.
