Reaction-Difusion (RD) Bitmap Printing
2012-2013, Bitmap 3D Print
Centre Pompidou, Paris, France
CT scan data is converted to material distribution charts guides the allocation of stiff and soft materials. A novel digital fabrication method developed by entitled Bitmap Printing that facilitates the 3d printing of 16-micron physical bits will be implemented to support high-resolution digital fabrication of heterogeneous functional material gradients. Each scale within the overall armor construction will be designed and printed with varying physical properties informed by our multi-scalar mappings. For more infromation see also Hierarchical RD Bitmap Printing.
