Robotic Construction/Fabrication got one step closer to becoming a reality…

I remember when this project was an academic project. It’s quote exciting to see it finally get some traction and get some serious investment. It will be exciting to see how it moves forward. LINK… Continue reading Robotic Construction/Fabrication got one step closer to becoming a reality…

Local Digi Fab Projects in Process…

There are some really inspiring projects in the Bay Area that are currently in construction or recently finished construction that I thought it was about time I shared with everyone….     690 Folsom, San Francisco Office of Charles F. Bloszies An abandoned parking garage stood as an eyesore on a prominent corner as buildings around it were transformed to meet the demand for space in San Francisco’s South of Market (SOMA) district. Boston Properties acquired the site as part of a larger development behind it and asked for a distinctive, eye-catching makeover. The new design features a metal screen … Continue reading Local Digi Fab Projects in Process…

Updated on Semester Research

After  further testing I have discovered that for the time being, a hexagonal grid pattern is not a viable solution for this semester’s research with the limited time left. Due to the fact that the plastic is not directly smashed on the the fabric as it was during the 2D panel tests, there is a little bit of drag that is allowed before the plastic hits the suspended fabric—this causes a certain amount of curve smoothing to occur  in the the extrusion path. Therefore a diagrid pattern is still the best solutions as it allows the extrusion path to be linear allowing the … Continue reading Updated on Semester Research
