Developing a mold-free approach for complex glulam production with the assist of computer vision technologies
Hua Chai, Zhixian Guo, Philip F. Yuan
Computer Science
2021
TLDR
A mold-free approach for complex glulam production is proposed, which consists of a mechanical system that spatially shapes the curved beam, and a vision system to inform the fabrication directly with design model, which could eliminate the use of complex molds in curved gluam production, greatly reduce wastes in post-processing process.Expand

A Multi-scalar Approach for the Modelling and Fabrication of Free-Form Glue-Laminated Timber Structures
Tom Svilans, Paul Poinet, Martin Tamke, M. Thomsen
Computer Science
2018
TLDR
This paper will examine how the concept of multi-scalar modelling as found in other disciplines can also be used to embed low-level material performance of glue-laminated timber into early-stage architectural design processes, thus creating opportunities for feedback across the design chain and an increased flexibility in effecting changes.
