Summary of C 04
The project will contribute to closing the gap between digital design and additive manufacturing. The conceived Design Decision Support System (DDSS) will enable the identification of components suitable for AM technology, founded on a for- mal AM knowledge base. Methods will be developed for generating Fabrication Information Models (FIM) from Building Information Models (BIM). These methods will be based on graph theory and algorithmic geometry. By incorporating manufacturing information from robots and sensors, methods for creating digital twin representations reflecting as-built geometry and properties are developed. The approaches are based on the concept of multi-LOD BIM ensuring the consis- tency between multiple levels of detail.
His task is to develop a DDSS at a early design phase integrating AM. The expected system needs to combine both hard rules (boundary conditions) and experts's experience, in order to advise the designer (architect) for feasible AM methods regarding to different building components.
is developing a data structure and corresponding methods (WP 2) that enable a closed chain between digital design (e.g. BIM) and digital manufacturing (mainly Additive Manufacturing). For backwards communication of "as-built" information during and after a manufacturing process, digital twin methods are incorporated into the developed FIM system (WP 3).
