Automation and robots will revolutionise the architecture and construction industries. The work is an investigation into surface geometries and new possibilities to print the building facade using additive manufacturing, carbon reinforced concrete or recyclable 3D printed moulds. The Research Team designed more than hundred facade typologies, forms and structures for the building facade based on simulated environmental performance. The results are layers of unseen form, complex structures and modular prototypes of modular elements that allow a faster production and construction process.
The "Digital Chaiselongue" is one of Philipp Aduatz latest experimental material technologies. He teamed up with the Austrian start-up incremental3d, who specialises in the field of 3D concrete printing and has developed a new technology to print very fine and detailed freeform geometries in a very short time. Aduatz’ aim is to show how an innovative product can be developed through the collaboration with engineers and the research in manufacturing technologies and why craft and digital implements can coexist for the purpose of novelty in the 21st century in harmony.
With the popularization of 3D printing technology, the appearance of the product has undergone tremendous changes, but also to the possibility of product structure has brought tremendous leaps, no matter how complex and changeable structures are, they can be manufactured by the way of 3D printing, The lamp mainly embodies bionic design form, Combining the complexity and diversity of the natural life system, sculpture forms into the design, giving the product a new visual form, interprets contemporary arts and crafts design with new forms and aesthetics, bringing users new experience.
3D printed records push the limits of what is currently possible given the precision of digital fabrication tools available to consumers today. These records were generated algorithmically from digital audio data and printed on a UV-cured resin 3D printer to micron precision. Though the audio quality is low, the records are meant to be a demonstration of the current state of the technology and encourage discussion about the broader implications that 3D printing has for the future of personal fabrication.
The 'BUBBLE' is a series of vase designs resembling bubble shapes. The vases are made from 3D printing using an environmentally friendly plastic. In addition, they have created an unique atmosphere by pointing the center of the vase with oriental green paint. The difference with other vases is that the product decomposes spontaneously when the product reaches its end of life.
The pebble garden machine is an additive manufacturing process developed for dry landscape design. It deploys coarse randomized aggregates, using epoxy resin as a binder and is assembled by an industrial robot into three-dimensional structures. It is perhaps the first application of 3D printing for dry landscape design and fabrication, creating counterintuitive geometric features such as tapering walls, cantilevering edges and low spanning arches. Overall artefacts have natural, man-made and machine aspects that are beautiful and breathtaking, capable to be produced at a fast rate.
