Extruded Structures, ETH Zürich, 2015
Elective course (4CP)
In the elective course “Extruded Structures” the students explored the design potentials of robotically printed mesh structures. Initially starting with conventional triangulated space frame structures, they expanded their research towards combined multi-sided polygons like rectangles and hexagons, and developed custom printing sequences for non-Standard spatial frames. These were fabricated as continuous extrusions at a scale of 1:10 using one Universal Robot UR5 robotic arm with a custom-built ABS filament extruder. Further differentiation strategies included three-dimensional grid extension, cantilevering, bridging and free-form supports. The findings were directly incorporated into the design and production of the installation "Iridescence Print" at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris.
