If you are interested in 3d-printing/additive manufacturing, CAD, architecture, or design in general, this session will be of interest to you.
Topics of discussion:
- Arguably the most beautiful car ever made, Citroen DS appeared in 1955, well before CAD system was in use. So how they design/manufacture those curved bodies?
- Splines, NURBS, subdivision surfaces : the technology behind CAD. Are they much more flexible than French curves?
- What are other unusual (yet ingenious) methods to design curved shapes?
Hint: Weaving, origami, and modular construction.
I will be succinct. You are most welcomed to take part in the discussion.
