Digital Clay - Non-Horizontal Layering/FF

  3D-Print ceramic mass Copyright: © C. Klug

The research field introduces the digital manufacturing process of Liquid Deposition Modeling&amp (LDM) and investigates the technical (play-)possibilities of extruded, plastic clay for architectural applications.

In LDM, non-horizontally layered& structures can be developed that incorporate the special properties of the material. Therefore, ceramic (building) structures are created in teamwork using algorithmic path definitions, which would not be producible with conventional slicing tools;.

The aim of the research field is to further exploit the potential of digital tools in their creative scope and to evoke new form and process designs. As in the case of manual handling, digital tools require a broad horizon of experience in practical shaping methods and processes. Programming knowledge in Grasshopper as well as the handling of the Delta WASP 3D-Clay-Printer will be imparted.
