>...AMiCo focuses on the development of an innovative, fully automated digital process chain from the design to the fabrication of geometrically individual node elements made of steel for the implementation of single-layer framework for facade and roof constructions. The aim of the development is to describe a parameter-based solution for the automated generation of printable data under weighted consideration of constructive, static and production-related boundary conditions.
The core of the project is the algorithm-based design process of the node connector elements, which need to fulfill all structural, technical and aestethic requirements. Through the implementation of the algorithm, base surfaces can easily be processed, generating the needed connector elements even for the most complex geometries.
