Shaping Materials/ 3D Printing
This workshop will explore different ways to shape materials, mostly with the help of computational routines. Experiments include soft and hard materials, 3D printing technologies and spinning technologies to generate non-woven textures, as well as the combination thereof. The goal is to search for new ways to create and shape smart materials and connections between diverse materials and functions.
The workshop is set as collaborative experiment with the machines and materials at hand. Participants are invited to bring their own interests, projects and materials to try out personal approaches on the machines available!
