Building without Nails: Enabling Flexibility and Structural Integrity through Digital Prototyping
This paper demonstrates developments in combining advanced structural design with computational modeling, towards realizing a construction system that allows for significant flexibility and adaptability in housing design within the Canadian context. Based on advanced digital prototyping strategies, the system enables high accuracy in the design phase leading to subsequent precision in production and assembly. Such an application allows delivering high levels of detailing in production of structural components, thus supporting the intention of predefined assembly on jobsites and reducing waste.
