Conference full papers:

In face of the improvement of additive manufacturing techniques for architecture and construction, the paper presents a design experiment that aims to demonstrate the feasibility of using an accessible technology such as a 3D desktop printer for the creation of low-cost artifacts. Based on the "research by design" method and "multi-scalar modeling" approach, it shows the creation of a digitally manufactured architectural component that can integrate as a final product a lightweight and flexible construction system. The result can be geometrically adapted and applied to canopies or facades, achieving an interface between high and low technologies.
