The Dome – full scale, realised and parametric project

4 08 2008

‘The Dome’ to projekt wykonany podczas trzeciego semestru studiow w studiu Digital Fabrication prowadzonym przez Marte Male Alemany w Iaac . Jest to wynik cztero-tygodniowej pracy dwudziestu studentow w pieciu roznych grupach (modelowanie, fabrykacja). Projekt ten od swego poczatku scisle powiazany byl z teza, udowadniajaca przewage parametrycznego modelowania i fabrykacji nad tradycyjnymi sposobami.
Cyfrowy obiekt wykonany zostal w parametryczny programie Top Solid, co pozwolilo na latwe kontrolowanie jego kszaltow poprzez zmiany dwoch krzywych. Kazda najmniejsza zmiana geometri kopuly byla zwiazana z modyfikacja kazdego z 1200 trujkatnych modulow, ktore w kolejnych sprzezonych plikach byly rozlozone do postaci 2d i gotowe do wyciecia za pomoca standardowej wycianarki laserowej. Proces cyfrowego modelowania zajal okolo 3 tygodni pracy, natomiast sama fabrykacja niespelna tydzien.

‘The Dome’ is project designed and realized by the group of 20 students during third term of
Iaac Master Course at the Digital Tectonics studio supervised by Marta Male Alemany.
Digital model of the dome was developed in parametric software, called Top Solid, and its shape is easily controlled by two different splines. That model was a base for almost 1200 triangular components (each one of them is different and customized to specific shape of final object), which were inserted and unfolded (for laser cutting machine) in the another, associated files. Thus every single change in the preliminary shape was followed by new 2d shapes for cutting. Design part took 3 weeks of working in five specialized groups (modelling, fabrication, etc.), all fabrication was done during one week.
