>about

    Fabian Eidner is a multi-disciplinary researcher based in Stuttgart, Germany. By exploring the potentials of novel fabrication methods such as additive-manufacturing and robotic assembly, his design practise oscillates between the capacities of computational techniques and physical fabrication, always linked with emergent technologies, algorithms and intuition.

    >...Clay-3D-Printing provides an insight into the potentials of joint use of robotic fabrication and additive manufacturing techniques as a generative constituent of the design process of clay vases. The research investigates the structural and formal impact of the manipulation of manufacturing parameters within the realm of clay-3d-printing.

//Stage_1: Learning how to fail better

 

              >... Design and G-Code are generated in a Slicing-application, devoloped in the processing-python framwork. By pressing the “Slice - button” .csv, .dat and .src - files are being generated and can be directly transferred to the KUKA controller.


//Stage_2: Optimizing
Through the implementation of interior support structure the vase gains stability and stiffness. As a result overhangs up to 35 degree are feasible.



//Stage_3: Patterns
The targeted manipulation of the printing path allows the generation of surface pattern. In combination with attractor points as a driver for the pattern amplitude smooth texture transitions are visible.
