Algorithmic modeling and prototyping of a structural joint for freeform surfaces

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review

Abstract

This paper describes a parametric approach in architectural design through the elaboration of a process for generating non-standard structural joints particularly suitable for the arrangement of freeform surfaces in which maximum adaptability of the system is required to join a different number of members converging in a node from generic directions. The algorithmic definitions, developed using the graphical editor Grasshopper integrated with Rhinoceros, allow the management of an integrated workflow from the conceptual design of freeform surface to the prototyping of a structural joint with 3D printing techniques.
