AbstractDuring 12 weeks, students will get to know both the hardware and the software to successfully use 3D printing technology as an aid to the architectural design process.

3D Printers will be made available to the Students.

ObjectiveThe students have to produce blocks of consecutive output. This ensures that all safety regulations are understood and the hybrid model technology is mastered. The focus is on the students learning how to best illustrate their architectural concept with the new model construction technique.
ContentBy means of numerous physically produced concepts of the students the range of possible developments is to be pointed out. The course is divided into 3 blocks: A (up to the seminar week): learning the basic technique. B (until 4 Weeks prior to End of semester): Develop and present 5 possible architectural concepts. C (until the end of the semester): deepening a concept by creating different variants.
Prerequisites / NoticeKnowledge of 3D printing technology is not required.
