Nodeless Network Workshop reduces costs for space frame structures with Fologram

The Nodeless Network workshop run by Arman Khalilbeigi and Esmaeil Mottaghi explores how to reduce costs in the fabrication and construction of a 3D spatial structure with augmented reality and Fologram. Students in this course researched how to eliminate the ‘Node/Joint’ in a 3D structure usually associated with large manifacutring and fabrication costs.

Using AR allowed for the use of recycled rod material, omitted the dependency on CNC machinery and simplified the assembly process of the parts. The overlapping rod connections eliminated the need for node joints that would usually increase the costs associated with the project.
