While Alba is going to participate in it as student of the ADDA’s BioDelab Research Laboratory, Oriol is going to be assitent of digital fabrication, he’s going to have in his hands a decent Raptor X-AL2600s CNC milling machine.
The workshop will explore the capabilities of modelling and fabricating a true scale component of a performative system. The aim of the workshop is combine students from Elisava and from TU Delft to develop new performative components, and then, fabricate them to build the system in true scale.
For the fabrication process of the components, we are going to use CNC milled expanded polystyrene molds for casting composites. Due the short time that has the workshop, students will use reinforced plaster to fill in the molds. With this tecnology, the true scale performative systems should be ready by the fifth workshop day, just before the final presentation.
More information about the workshop and a detailed schedule can be found on ADDA blog post.
