Towards Digital Containerized Factories of Composite Architectural Panels for Complex Shaped Buildings
The authors researched new methods using fiber-reinforced composite sandwich panels to produce on-site digitally fabricated curved panels for use in complex shaped buildings. This research examined the material properties, manufacturing methods, and fabrication techniques needed to develop a system using readily available production technology that can be packaged in a mobile containerized facility for on-site panel production. This paper presents production materials, methods, assembly techniques, and design proposals for a proof of concept digital containerized panel factory.
