.:IaaC:. Final Submittal

The presentation boards have been submitted to the 2007 IaaC Self-Fab Home Competition. The presentation boards, new graphs, images, and a powerpoint shall be posted at a later date. The site will now switch gears focusing work towards the genetic evolution script of these structures, which is ongoing and will continue to be researched and […]

ArchiMorph Land

Yesterday in Indianapolis we began to write the L-System script for Generative Components. Using C# and Rhino Visual Basic we worked on writing an L-System that would be ran thru a genetic evolution code and then put into GC. Fitness Criteria, based of climatic conditions and inhabitable space, would be used to filter out the […]

September Progress

Bottom-up control begins at the molecular level through manipulation of the basic component, the nanobot. At the nanometer scale one will see convergent assembly lines generating nanobot components fueled by carbon split from CO2, and driven by carbon based nano-processors1. These self-replicating nanobots are chained together by nanotubes which simultaneously provide a way of transporting […]

August Progress

Data has been gathered from the four different sites(Alaska, Australia, Spain, and Brazil), located throughout the world. Minumum, average, and maximum annual temperatures and rainfall have been graphed out. At this point we would like to show four different structures for each of the four different cities. The four different structures would represent the four […]

Monday Evening Meeting

At Monday night’s meeting we discussed where we are headed with our project and our presentation boards. Currently we are working to produce a digital 3d model of the nanobot (and associated parts) in 3ds max for the presentation models and diagrams. For the structure we are working with Bentley GC. Our idea for Bentley […]

Monday’s meeting

We are interested, then, in everything from the intelligent application of traditional techniques to advanced digital processes in which digital fabrication entails the use of computers not only as design tools but also as tools for self-production.” IAAC Website Focusing on the high-tech portion of the brief we are considering a flexible building skeleton that […]
