title A new meaning to the physical model: 3D printing and architectural design teaching
source SIGRADI 2015 [Proceedings of the 19th Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - vol. 1 - ISBN: 978-85-8039-135-0] Florianópolis, SC, Brasil 23-27 November 2015, pp. 350-354.
summary This article aims to produce reflections on two main aspects of the use of so-called 3D printing to produce physical models in architectural design processes: 1. preparation of files, preparation of students; 2. printed physical models as part of the design process. In addition to brief literature review of the key concepts involved, the article relies on results of research conducted by Nomads.usp Center of Interactive Living Studies (, and activities with students of the mandatory undergraduate course “Project 3: architecture, city, landscape,” both of the Institute of Architecture and Urbanism, University of Sao Paulo, IAU-USP (, Brazil.
