The Digitally Enhanced Construction Architecture and Fabrication studio utilized NC (numeric controlled) equipment such as: CNC milling, laser cutting, plasma cutting, 3D printing, etc. Digital tools allow accelerated production times, customization on a mass scale, and the introduction of new materials. Principals such as file-to-factory scenarios and proper construction practices were carried out to fruition.
Software scripting was employed throughout most of the process in order to create greater control. Grasshopper, Rhino and other various plugins provided the means to conception. Addressing tolerances and nuances of digital to physical fabrication became routine and allowed for larger projects to be explored. This ultimately led to a budgeted proposal and presentation at the Materials & Applications Gallery.
