Clay 3D printing workshop CITA STUDIO
This workshop was a collaborative design-build exercise which was about computational masonry and 3D printing with soft-rigid materials - in this case clay. The aim was to explore geometries which are structurally aware and their associated design space, in relation to their materiality and fabrication technology.
Traditional layer-by-layer 3d printing methods was used in the task for building as high and fast as possible. Function Representations (F-Rep) and image based technology was employed to generate digital geometries with a custom toolkit before to be translated into robotic instructions for the physical world.
