Utilizing Rapid Prototyping for Architectural Modeling
Kirton, E. F.; Lavoie, S. D.
Engineering Design Graphics Journal, v70 n1 p23-28 Win 2006
This paper will discuss our approach to, success with and future direction in rapid prototyping for architectural modeling. The premise that this emerging technology has broad and exciting applications in the building design and construction industry will be supported by visual and physical evidence. This evidence will be presented in the form of photographs, video recordings and several models of student projects. Our approach to the future of this technology is discussed without a definitive conclusion, as despite our successes we remain in an exploratory mode regarding software, equipment and industry adoption.
