3D Printed Facade.


Mamoud, a PHD student is looking into light facades. He needed to print different facades for summer and winter, he would then test them is a lab with different lighting environments to see if the real world supported the experiments he was doing digitally. The facades are incredibly thin and delicate and printing 6 of them took about a week, removing them and curing them was very difficult. An approach that Mamoud took that was very clever, was to print a test piece of a small section of the facade, from this he was able to see if the junctions would be strong enough to take its own weight.
