Imagine replicating a hundred years’ old historic element or prefabricating hundreds of steel trusses in just a few weeks. Imagine doing so with the highest level of precision, quality, and sustainability. Digital fabrication is making this a reality for design and construction. This approach utilizes BIM data, acquired from laser scanning and drone techniques, to power manufacturing processes to create architectural and structural elements efficiently and safely.
Digital fabrication offers clients significant cost and time savings while delivering a high-quality product. With the ability to form various geometries, from historic replications to new design, the possibilities are endless. Explore this novel approach with our expert panel and leave with ideas of how to use it in the design and construction of your next project. This panel will also review use cases of 3D printing and other digital fabrication methods on historic preservation and ground-up construction projects.
Recognize how acquired digital data, from laser scanning and drones, can be used to develop BIM fabrication models to power the digital fabrication process.
Take a deep dive into the different digital fabrication methods available today such as 3D printing and how they are being applied to solve real project challenges.
Identify novel approaches to historic preservation and replication using digital fabrication techniques.
Describe how structural elements can be prefabricated offsite for new construction.
