vMESH : How to print Architecture?

Raspall, Felix; Bañón, Carlos;

Full Article:

The use of 3D printing in architectural research, education and practice has been almost exclusively destined to produce physical representations – models— of designed building. Recent advances in Additive Manufacturing (AM) have exponentially increased the mechanical properties of 3D printed parts, opening new opportunities for this technology to be directly applied to functional architectural components at an increasingly larger scale. Thus, this paper examines the design, structural and aesthetic implications, as well as the feasibility of advanced 3D printing technologies in the production of functional architectural components through the design and prototyping of a customized, non-regular spatial frame system.
