title Synthesis of cutting-edge technologies and miniature tooling in the physical modelling of architectural objects designed on CAD
source SIGraDi 2005 - [Proceedings of the 9th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Lima - Peru 21-24 november 2005, vol. 1, pp. 178-183
summary Developments made in the Rapid Prototyping and CAD/CAM (including CNC and Laser) Technologies are giving designers the advantage of building physical realities, at whatever scale, directly and automatically from computer files, with the explicit implications of speed, precision and flexibility. Yet there are modeling details that can only be solved through the use of specialized materials, accessories and miniature tools which neither fall under the CNC, laser or rapid prototyping categories, but complement them. The most emphatic aspect of this research is to show how technical expertise, craftsmanship and detailing in the making of physical models require the intervention of not-so-well-known tools and machines. In the absence of an ideal technology to convert all 3-d digital models into physical models, and despite the advent of CAD-CAM and Rapid Prototyping, the combination of high technology and miniature tooling becomes the ultimate way to go in order to solve many modeling requirements.
