Talk “Opti-Knot 3-D –Digital Planning and Manufacturing of Freeform Frames”

5.10.2019, 6pm

The project “Opti­-Knot 3­-D” shows that current topics such as digitalization, industry 4.0, and mass customization are directly related to economic uses in the creative industries. The employ­ment of digital planning and calculating approaches can considerably expand the potential complexity of freeform building structures and simplify geomet­ric determination and production. As a proof of concept, this approach was implemented in the form of a pavilion measuring several meters which will be open daily during the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK. Its structure was optimized stati­cally, and the manufacturing data for the nodes produced on a 3-­D printer, which automatically generated both dowels and wooden panels.
