Natural systems show heterogeneous surface properties for various purposes such as water repellency, anti-adhesion and anti-reflection. In leaves, wings or skins we find multifunctional surfaces with diverse chemical and mechanical properties.

In the CAD CAM course, students developed nature-inspired surfaces modeled by parametric design tools. The dynamic CAD environment offers a lot of flexibility in the early design stages and allows creation of complex, heterogeneous geometries using the 3D printing process. Selected patterns were 3D printed on fabric to explore their haptic, tectonic properties. Focus is put on the creative use of digital design tools and computer-aided form-finding processes as well as additive manufacturing technologies.

Results of the course were exhibited at the Rundgang 2019, Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin.
