ts phase changing properties, as a spatial material without a traditional framework or support material creates the ability to navigate and fabricate directly on and around existing objects.
Use of 3D vector-based tool paths and a robotic arm forced the students to rethink their design strategy through the exploration of the relationship between material and tooling. Custom tools and techniques were developed through the workshop in order to work with this novel material. The following work produced during this 10-day workshop from students of Tamkang University, ChiaoTung University, Feng Chia University examine this approach....

requirements for making a valid 3D printable part. The basics are these:
1. Construct the curve forming the shape of the part (I use 6 points and an interpolated curve.)
2. Use this curve to make a Sweep1 surface
3. Extrude a small square along this same curve to make a make a square-shaped ridge and cap it. (I've tried triangles too.)
4. Make a circular Curve Array of 3 specifying the number of ribs you want. Be sure to use a rail curve that matches the sweep curve in 1.
5. Twist these ribs a specified # degrees, and then twist them the same number of degrees in the opposite direction.
6. Join 1 & 5 and you're done - almost. As I said, the top of the part will be flat, so I add a small circular cone to make it come to a nice point.
For 3D printing I had to give the basic surface thickness so I could control the amount of light transmitted through it, and also to eliminate naked edges, so Step 2 is actually more complicated than I indicated above. …
