Replay Conference n°3 @ La Gaîté Lyrique with special guest Philippe Morel

June 6, 2016By Stephanie Lenne3D Printing, Digital Manufacturing, Robotics No Comments

The stakes of large scale 3D printing If 3D printing – or additive manufacturing – represents a set of mature technologies in many industries now it still remains new and it keeps growing. For it, maturity does not mean stopping its growth, and even less the beginning of the decline. Whether in medicine or aviation … Read More

Adaptive Pneumatic Shell Structures

December 8, 2015By Domenico Di SienaComputational Design, Robotics No Comments

This Master Thesis proposes to reconsider common fabrication post-processes in architectural design (surface discretization, assembly methods) by developing a novel fabrication approach that uses a flexible material that would be further actuated – at a full scale – through inflation and additive stiffening processes. The global form is undetermined and generated from the material behavior … Read More
