RMIT students fabricate complex timber structures with the HoloLens

Kun Dai and Jarry Tan from the Augmented Assemblies design studio led by Sean Guy at RMIT University have used Fologram to construct a complex timber prototype. The prototype, a proof of concept of a larger pavilion design, consists of a collection of bespoke timber elements of different sizes and lengths assembled in a complex cloud-like structure.

The students used Fologram to develop their own interactive user interface and workflow for fabrication to create assembly instructions in augmented reality. This mean students could accurately fit timber lengths into place to achieve the complex form of their design project.
