Surface articulation through CNC-milling

Ongoing research on surface articulation using CNC-milling manufacturing processes. Various fabrication strategies are applied to doubly-curves surface geometries in order to increase efficiency of the production and integrate limitations and constraints of the machines into the very early stage of the design process. CASE STUDY_01 Fabrication […]
