For design and construction, the combination of computer aided design with modern fabrication techniques have rendered novel formal opportunities on ever increasing scales. For the production of double-curved surfaces in particular, additive processes like 3D printing have shown promise, but with these unique challenges: 1) the layering and spanning of homogenous materials often require form compromising support structures and 2) the overall composition is subject to cubic growth in weight and fabrication time with increases in scale. Through experimentation with robotic extrusion we hope to develop techniques that minimize these constraints and to produce light-weight double – curved shell structures without the use of molds.

  • The Proceedings of IASS Annual Symposia include the articles presented at each symposium. They are grouped by thematic sessions. These limited-length conference papers are reviewed and selected by the Scientific or Technical Committee of each symposium, and generally only those actually presented orally at the conference are included. Although the metadata for the papers is available to the public, only members of the IASS can view the full papers, for which the author(s) hold the copyright. Further information about the projects or research should be sought from the author(s).
